The Real Deal still has lofty goals

Former undisputed world heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield made the interview rounds Friday and Saturday during an appearance in Western New York for the Buffalo Niagara Film Festival.

Holyfield, "The Real Deal," turns 49 next month but has a title fight lined up for Dec. 17 against WBA champ Alexabder Poventkin in his quest to do the unthinkable --- become the oldest boxer to unify the three major world heavyweight titles.

He also talked about his role in a documentary he helped present at the festival.
