Evander Holyfield is asking a federal judge to stop an upcoming auction of some of his boxing memorabilia, including an Olympic bronze medal and gloves he wore to fight Mike Tyson. Holyfield's lawsuit filed Thursday in Los Angeles seeks an order blocking the sale of 20 out of almost 450 items that Julien's Auctions plans to sell in November. Julien's Auctions CEO Darren Julien says his company has worked for months to organize a world-class auction of Holyfield's memorabilia and other items. He says the company had approval from Holyfield to list the items for sale and has already advanced him hundreds of thousands of dollars. Holyfield wants a judge to block the sale of the disputed items, including the gloves he used in a 1996 bout with Tyson.
