A FAMILY MAN NEARING HIS 50TH BIRTHDAY BECOMES THE FIRST PARTICIPANT TO EVER FAIL THE BOOT CAMP PHYSICAL - HOW WILL TRAINER CHRIS POWELL MOVE FORWARD WITH THE WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY? -- ON ABC'S "EXTREME WEIGHT LOSS"

Trainer Chris Powell Surprises Mike with the Opportunity to Box with Five-Time World Heavyweight Champion Evander Holyfield

"Mike" - Mike, from Voorhees, NJ, is a family man on the cusp of turning 50 years old, as well as celebrating his 20th wedding anniversary. He hopes to safely lose up to half of his 417 pounds so he can be a superhero to his three kids and a knight in shining armor to his deserving wife. Mike was once a tremendous athlete in college, maintaining a vigorous nutrition and weight lifting regimen. But his body forgot what healthy living was like following his father's untimely death, and Mike shifted his focus from fitness to family. Mike's intense desire to now reverse his unhealthy slide was unlike anything trainer Chris Powell has encountered. But when Mike becomes the first participant to ever fail the routine medical exam at boot camp, how will Chris move forward with Mike's weight loss journey? For one of his milestones, Chris wants to give Mike a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and box five-time World Heavyweight Champion Evander Holyfield, on "Extreme Weight Loss," TUESDAY, AUGUST 13 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
