Former boxing world champion Evander Holyfield has admitted he "wasn't happy" he was evicted from 'Celebrity Big Brother' by Lee Ryan and Casey Batchelor rather than the public
Evander Holyfield "wasn't happy" his 'Celebrity Big Brother' eviction was out of the public's hands.
The former heavyweight world-boxing champion was voted out by Lee Ryan and Casey Batchelor - who were part of a staged fake eviction - and admitted he is disappointed at how it was handled.
He said: "I wasn't happy about that. But for whatever reason that it changed, it did."
Evander also insisted his sporting career and "reputation" meant he would have stood a "good chance" of making it to the final if it was based on the public vote.
He added: "Everybody knew coming in here who is the most popular person. And when you talk about 'popular person', you're talking about what a person has already done.
"I had been the champion five times. I already did it already. My reputation's already there as to what type of person I was so it's easy to think that there's a good chance I'd be in the final.
"That's what I was hoping on anyway. I realised whatever I did, if the public vote, I was going to be in there."
