HOLYFIELD-LEWIS SET FOR MARCH 13 GARDEN PARTY

          Evander Holyfield and Lennox Lewis will meet in a
     heavyweight championship unification bout on March 13 at
     MSG.  The fight will be carried live on TVKO, HBO's PPV arm. 
     A press conference will be held Monday to announce the fight
     (MSG).  Holyfield, the WBA and IBF champion, will receive
     $20M, while WBC champion Lewis will earn $8-10M (Timothy
     Smith, N.Y. TIMES. 11/25).  In N.Y., Neal Travis writes that
     following the Holyfield-Lewis unification, "the stage will
     be set" for Mike Tyson to eventually face the winner, which
     could "produce the biggest gate ever for a fight, with world
     revenues of maybe $250 million" (N.Y. POST, 11/25).
