Don King of All Things.

"So I said publicly that God told me I was going to knock him out in the third round. It didn't happen. And by the time the third round ended and I didn't knock him out, I began to lose energy."

- Evander Holyfield, former Heavyweight Champion of the World, on his predicted victory over Lennox Lewis, 1999.

Holyfield shared God’s words out of anger after Lewis called him a hypocrite. Lewis made his remarks because the religious Holyfield has several children out of wedlock.

"I thought that was none of his business, and he was ignorant about me. And I was mad,” Holyfield said.

The fight ended in a draw. Holyfield retained his title, but later lost in a rematch.
