A Blow to the Stomach?: Heavyweight boxer Evander Holyfield is offering fellow pugilists James Buster Douglas and Mike Tyson easy money; easy, that is, if they can sit through a horror movie. “Blood Salvage,” which Holyfield helped finance and in which he makes an appearance, tells the story of a south Georgia auto mechanic. The grease monkey also moonlights as a dealer in transplanted organs, which he extracts from, shall we say, unwilling donors. In newspaper ads for the movie, which opened Friday in Atlanta, Holyfield says: “This movie is so scary that I’m willing to donate $10,000 to the charity of their choice if Mike Tyson and Buster Douglas have the guts to sit through an entire screening on their own! Are you man enough?”
