LAS VEGAS -- One has to wonder what goes through the mind of Evander Holyfield. What is his view of the world? How does he see his place in it?

Holyfield, the once but certainly never again champion, looks like he has a championship shot lined up. Promoter Don King plans to match Holyfield with WBO heavyweight champion Lamon Brewster as soon as Brewster recovers from injuries he suffered Saturday in successfully defending his title against Kali Meehan.

Brewster suffered a broken zygomatic arch and a ruptured eardrum in barely squeezing by Meehan. Somehow, judges Dave Moretti and Nelson Vazquez gave Brewster the final round, which gave Brewster an undeserved decision.

Brewster was abysmal, looking slow and disinterested throughout much of the fight. He was deluding himself afterward when he spoke of what a great fight he had engaged in.

If Holyfield saw the fight, he had to think, "Hey, I can beat this guy." And that's not if beating Brewster is such a huge task.
