Evander Holyfield took on Matt Hardy in a boxing match during a 2007 edition of Saturday Night's Main Event. “The Real Deal” certainly was as legitimate as they come with his fists. An Olympic medallist, four-time heavyweight world champion and cruiserweight world champion, we often remember the sour notes such as the infamous Mike Tyson incident, but forget how successful he was in his prime.

Holyfield has featured in wrestling rings on more than one occasion, but his bout against Matt Hardy was his biggest showcase. Not only did Holyfield get to put his gloves on Hardy for two rounds, but he also scored a “knockout” over MVP after he entered the ring to let his voice be heard.

There were also some backstage rumors of a potential bust-up between commentator John “Bradshaw” Layfield and Holyfield. Luckily things didn’t spill over.
