$750,000 to $1 million, not bad for a guy who hasn't won a fight for years and who got whipped by Sultan Ibragimov last year.
Despite his size, Valuev isn't really a big puncher and Holyfield always had a great chin. I don't think it's likely he'll get seriously hurt.
EDIT: It looks like Holyfield has very little choice but to continue to fight. http://www.ajc.com/blogs/content/shared-blogs/ajc/schultz/entries/2008/06/06/difficult_times_for_evander_ho.html
EDIT2: I see the PPV start was 3 PM EST, but I assume there's some undercards. It's not too late to order!
