This is the first loss in the pro boxing career of Evan. He was 9-0 going into his bout with McDonald. The result came as a big surprise owing to McDonald’s journeyman record of 6-5 going into the clash.

Holyfield was a massive -10,000 betting favorite going into the fight with McDonald. Very early in the fight, McDonald connected with a clean overhand right over Evan’s jab, that shook him completely. Evan wasn’t even allowed to beat the 10-count as the referee felt that by eight, he didn’t have a chance in the fight.

Evan Holyfield reacts to his loss

Combat Sports is brutal to say the least. A win takes you to the highest highs and a loss feels like deep hole in the heart. Young Evan Holyfield tasted defeat for the first time, and although it is a bitter pill to swallow, the fighter will come back stronger.

He has a huge name that he has to carry, and the burden of that value, and the unbeaten record sometimes breaks you. He reacted to the loss by giving his opponent the due credit he deserved and said, ‘Blessed to be in good health, and that was good shot no cap! Hope I didn’t disappoint too many folk, but I promise I’ll make up for it. Definitely still have my sights on being world champion!’
