The scariest heavyweight of the 90s era, Evander Holyfield, retired from the sport in 2011. He was a top-grade boxer with the most decorated career in boxing. Outside the fight world, ‘The Real Deal’ has been an equally humble man, trying to create a positive impact on people’s lives.

In the video, Holyfield was moving out of his house with his plush black Mercedes when a mini lorry driver from the back raced and stopped behind Holyfield’s car abruptly. He then overtook ‘The Real Deal’ and stopped right in front of his car.

The lorry driver stepped out and walked towards Holyfield’s car. He swore at him from outside and challenged him to come out. He yelled, “Get the hell out of that car right now.” The driver was unaware that the former heavyweight champion was driving that car.

Many expected the 58-year-old to come out of his vehicle and knock the driver out. But Holyfield did exactly the opposite of that. He stepped out at stared at the other driver until he received an apology.

This video left boxing fans amused. But the central idea of this was Holyfield trying to educate everyone about why road rage is something to avoid. His fans hailed him for putting out this social message in his own exuberant way.
