Holyfield Defeated Bean

Though the fight began late on the night of Sept. 19, it didn’t end until 12:15 a.m. on Sept. 20. At the Georgia Dome, Atlanta boxer Evander Holyfield successfully defended his IBF/WBA heavyweight title in a 12-round unanimous - though surprisingly close - decision over challenger Vaugh Bean.
