Evander Holyfield stopped Frans Botha in Las Vegas on Saturday to claim the lightly-regarded World Boxing Federation heavyweight title.
The 47-year-old knocked down Botha, 41, in the eighth round and although the South African beat the count the fight was stopped soon after.
Afterwards Holyfield, fighting for the first time since December 2008, vowed to seek more title fights.
“I’m going to be the undisputed world heavyweight champion,” he said.
Holyfield had been behind on two judges’ cards 67-66 when referee Russell Mora halted the bout, while the third judge had it 69-64 for Holyfield.
But the veteran drew on his resources to land a big blow and he is confident he can emulate George Foreman, who was 45 when he regained the world heavyweight title 15 years ago.
