NBC reporter doesn't recognize Evander Holyfield at the Olympics 2012
He's also Evander Holyfield, who was the best heavyweight champion fighter for over a decade, but she (and the producers) failed to recognize him. It's a gaffe made even more embarrassing by the fact that Holyfield is actually employed by NBC, as a sports pundit. Holyfield won a Bronze medal at the 1984 Olympics.
"The @todayshow did interview me yesterday and ur right they didn't mention who I was," tweeted Holyfield after a few fans pointed out the error. "Look, the @todayshow did a good job. It was hard to recognize me with the baseball cap. This could happen to any reporter. LOL!!"
Later he added, "Hopefully when I get on the @todayshow they will remember who I am! I won't be wearing my white baseball cap! LOL."
