Holyfield is prepared, focused, and ready: GIF Spotlight

Evander Holyfield steps out of the darkness, into the light, puts up his dukes, gets into his rhythm. This dramatic sequence is the beginning of Evander Holyfield's Real Deal Boxing, on the Sega Genesis video game console, 1992. They have better graphics now, supposedly. But do they capture the intensity? No way. Not in this era. These kids today, they don't have the gaming intensity of the old-timers. More technical graphics, less soul. 'Vander's Real Deal would have too much heart for Fight Night Champion in its prime. Prime for prime. Prime for prime, it's 'Vander time!

  1. OT: Is Manny Pacquiao really retiring now that he has won the senatorial seat? You can still watch his videos at his official youtube channel. Check out Oscar De La Hoya visiting Manny Pacquiao here.
