Boxing superstar Evander Holyfield will be the VIP guest at a special dinner at the Cedar Court Hotel, Ainley Top next month.

The 50-year-old former WBC, WBA and IBF world heavyweight champion will attend the event on September 26.

Holyfield won 44 of his 57 professional fights, and famously had part of his ear bitten off during a bout with Mike Tyson in 1997.

Stephen Oleksewycz, from OlexyFresh promotions, who are hosting the event, said: “It’s the first and only time he’s coming over to the UK so we’re delighted.

“It should be another high quality evening of entertainment with music, a comedian and an auction.

“He’s doing a lot of work for his charity at the moment and he’ll be giving a good account of his career.

“His agents agreed on the back of the other successful events we’ve done so we’re very pleased.

“We’re expecting it to be a sell-out as there are only a few tables left.”
