Evander Holyfield is set to take on Kevin McBride on Saturday 5th June 2021 in the United States. The fight is scheduled for 8 rounds in the Heavyweight division, which means there is no weight limit.
This fight will appear on the undercard of Teofimo Lopez’s and George Kambosos Jnr’s clash for the The Ring Lightweight, IBF World Lightweight, WBA Super World Lightweight and WBC Franchise Lightweight championship.
Four-time world heavyweight boxing champion Evander Holyfield is making his return to the “sweet science” at the tender age of 58, no doubt an attempt to follow the financial footprint of fellow geriatric pugilist Mike Tyson.
“The Real Deal” retired from boxing after stopping Brian Nielsen in May 2011.
Holyfield (57-10-2, 1 NC) returns on June 5 opposite 47 year-old Kevin McBride (35-10-1), perhaps best known for retiring Tyson back in June 2005. “The Clones Colossus” has not competed in nearly a decade, having dropped six of his last seven.
