Evan Holyfield is taking a fighting stance like dad. The teen recently won his first fight with dad, Evander Holyfield, and Mike Tyson by his side.


Evan battled it out with the competition until he came out on top with a medal on his neck and smile on his face. Dad was so proud of his son tweeting, “Congrats to my son Evan on winning his fight. Never quit.” Mike Tyson stood next to the teen, holding the medal out so the camera could snap a clear pic.

Evan was one of several celebrity kids to walk the runway for charity last year at the ‘2012 Runway Red’ fashion show hosted by the Show Me the Way foundation. Sean Combs and T.I.’s kids also took part in the event that sought to bring aid to children with HIV/AIDS.

Evander has eleven children in all. He and wife Candi have three kids together.
