I'm guessing it's because Holyfield probably won something called the IBO or the WBF...some title that's not recognized by many. Everyone's a champ nowadays.
As for Hopkins, I thought he controlled the majority of the second half but started a little slow (as he usually does) in the first half. The first KO was suspect but the second was legit IMO. I thought Hopkins won by a point or two but a draw wasn't out of line for me. Nice crowd that came out in Canada. If this fight were in the U.S. it draws 3K people, LOL.
