Holyfield won something called the "WBF" heavyweight belt. The WBF is NOT a major world title. There are 4 major world championship organizations - WBA, WBC, IBF, & WBO. Anything else is NOT considered a legitimate world title.
Holyfield is NOT the oldest man to win a world title - George Foreman is. Holyfield is NOT a 5-time heavyweight world champ - he's a 4-time champ - and lucky to be that due to his controversial win over John Ruiz. The media should not try to trick casual boxing fans & non-fans that don't know any better.
