Rep. Newt Gingrich, R-Ga., is willing to fight for one of his constituents, heavyweight boxing champ Evander Holyfield. The World Boxing Council has threatened to strip Holyfield of the title he won from Buster Douglas last month unless Holyfield, an Atlanta resident, makes his first title defense against Mike Tyson instead of George Foreman. "It would be outrageous for the WBC to violate its own bylaws and take the title of heavyweight champion of the world away from Mr. Holyfield when he has done nothing wrong," Gingrich said in a letter to the boxing organization. "If the WBC did strip him of the title, there would surely be cause for an official inquiry."
