Evander Holyfield’s son Evan delivers a massive second-round stoppage to extend unbeaten record

Evan Holyfield clattered Charles Stanford to the canvas in the second round of their fight to score a knockout in front of his legendary father on Saturday night.

Evander Holyfield, one of just three men to become world champion at cruiserweight and heavyweight and the long-time rival of Mike Tyson, watched from ringside as his son impressed again.

Evan, 24, stung Stanford with a left hook then heavily dropped him with a right hand shortly into the second round in his home city of Atlanta.

Evander Holyfield celebrates with his son

He is unbeaten in eight fights, with six knockouts, in the super-welterweight division.

He celebrated with his father who, aged 58, was back in the ring earlier this year but was beaten inside a round by former UFC great Vitor Belfort.

Xander Zayas also recorded victory with a fourth-round stoppage against Dan Karpency.

Zayas, a 19-year-old Puerto Rican talent, delivered enough hurtful blows to convince his opponent to be withdrawn by his corner.
