On Friday night, living boxing legend Evander Holyfield and star singer Justin Bieber caught up in Herning, Denmark.
The four-time world heavyweight champion was in town to attend Saturday´s TV2 Fight Night and promote his upcoming legends-of-the-ring clash with Brian Nielsen in Copenhagen on May 7, while Bieber gave a concert in front of a sell-out crowd at the brand-new Jyske Bank BOXEN.
The 17-year-old has most recently done a sparring session with WBA Heavyweight Champion David Haye in London. Bieber was excited to meet “The Real Deal” and had a skateboard and gloves signed. “It was great to meet Justin Bieber,” Holyfield said. “My kids would have loved this, too. I can´t wait to show them the pictures and tell them about it.”
Bieber wished Holyfield well for his upcoming fight. After looking at his opponent Brian Nielsen, he asked the Real Deal in what round he was going to knock the Dane out.
Holyfield and Nielsen then watched the World Tour concert from a skybox, enjoying the special atmosphere inside Boxen.
