Cooking Wars: George Foreman against Evander Holyfield

Even though Evander got, "Knocked the BLANK out!"...
That doesn't stop Tha DON (in this picture at least) from saying..."Anything you can do I can do better..."

These two grizzly fighters are used to competing...first in the ring now out and in the kitchen! Who's product is going to be better?!! My bets are on the million dollar winner George Foreman and his Mean Lean Fat Grilling Machine ($100 million in sales since 1995). He's had the market and I think will keep it with little competition from Holyfield. My roommate is in L.O.V.E with Foreman's machine...she even puts her toast on it! Shout out..."Hey girl!" Holyfield should have thought of this lofty idea YEARS ago to bring some real competition to the champ. Oh well. He will STILL get some money out of it. Why not?!!

Forget the boxing ring. A new battle between veteran fighters George Foreman and Evander Holyfield will soon take place on kitchen countertops all across the country.
As Michael Buffer would say, let's get ready to marinate! Holyfield is set to raise the curtain on "Evander Holyfield Real Deal Grill," a direct competitor to Foreman's famous "Lean Mean Fat Reducing Grilling Machine," which has reportedly earned $100 million in sales since 1995, reports the Associated Press.

"I've got a George Foreman grill. It's a good grill," Holyfield, 44, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "But don't you think the latest grill is supposed to be the best grill?"

Holyfield was approached to throw his name on the $99 grill by Utah-based manufacturer CirTran Corp. The company said it was inspired to sign Holyfield after he appeared on ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" in 2005.

A 30-minute infomercial – featuring Holyfield in an apron – describes the product's culinary and health benefits. The video began airing last week.

In the meantime, Holyfield continues his day job with another fight scheduled for Oct. 13 against Sultan Ibragimov at Moscow's Khodynka Ice Palace arena. The boxer is on a current mission to retire as the oldest heavyweight champion in history.
