At age 48, 5-time heavyweight champ, Evander Holyfield is still fighting

"I have a goal. My goal ever since 1992 to be the heavyweight champion of the world again."

At age 48, Evander Holyfield isn't letting age stop him in his quest to become a heavyweight champion once again. Over his 26 year career he has fought in countless fights, won 5 heavyweight titles, and even participated in a memorable stint on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars." He gets back in the ring this Saturday night against Sherman "Tank" Williams at the Greenbrier in White Sulpher Springs, West Virginia.

On American Morning, Holyfield tells Kiran Chetry how he stayed in shape for his upcoming fight and says, "The only reason you don't reach goals is because you quit."

    If Holyfield feels strong enough then let him step up.
