Holyfield Fires Manager

ATLANTA () -- Former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield, intending to resume his career despite a recent heart problem, has fired manager Shelly Finkel, who opposes the comeback.


Finkel, who still manages a handful of fighters, most notably Pernell Whitaker, has said it is unwise for Holyfield to return to the ring.


He said Wednesday he was neither surprised nor bitter about the split, although he said the manner in which the firing was handled was unusual.
