Former Heavyweight boxing champion Evander Holyfield proved to be a knock-out performer at a special dinner at the Cedar Court Hotel.

Holyfield was the special guest for the sell-out event held at the hotel at Ainley Top.

More than 300 diners packed the room to see the only five-time heavyweight champion of the world, who hosted a question and answer session after the three-course meal.

Promoter Stephen Oleksewycz said: “It was another brilliant night. He just kept talking and talking so the crowd definitely got their money’s worth!

“He was really well appreciated by everyone and was a very down-to-earth, easy going bloke.”

Fellow former fighter Ricky Hatton will be the VIP guest at a dinner at Dean Clough on November 21.
