Strange but true: Evander Holyfield releases Real Deal Grill

Filed under:

Truth really is stranger than fiction: not only has one former heavyweight champion managed to make a lucrative post-boxing career hawking electric cooking appliances, but now yet another former champ is throwing his proverbial apron into the ring with the release of Evander Holyfield's Real Deal Grill. The press release doesn't actually mention what makes the $99 CirTran-built grill any better than Mr. Foreman's product, but that doesn't stop the former Tyson snack from taunting "don't you think the latest grill is supposed to be the best grill?" Holyfield (or whomever scripted his lines) goes on to advise that "you must connect with a product like you connect with a's a real knockout of a product, and I am committed to making The Real Deal Grill a true champion." Good luck with that, Evander, but as Hank Hill might say, they're still selling your grill in housewares dude.

Update: Once again, The Onion proves eerily prescient (kinda) -- thanks Arthur B!
