Boxer Holyfield is a forgotten hero

But a comical sign of how far the 49-year-old boxer has faded from view occurred on US television when broadcaster NBC interviewed him in London without appearing to realise who he was. Holyfield was interviewed in a vox-pop montage of tourists in London aired on NBC's Today breakfast programme.

“The Todayshow did interview me yesterday and ur right they didn't mention who I was,” a bemused Holyfield admitted on Twitter.

Holyfield won a boxing bronze medal at the 1984 Los Angeles Games before embarking on a successful professional career best remembered for his two epic fights with Mike Tyson in 1996 and 1997.
