Hall of Fame boxer Evander Holyfield is returning to the ring since retiring in 2011, taking on heavyweight Kevin McBride in an eight-round exhibition match on June 5. The Holyfield-McBride matchup, which will be streamed on Triller and will be on the undercard of Teofimo Lopez’s lightweight title defense against George Kambosos.
Holyfield, 58, has a professional record of 44-10-2. In 2005, McBride (35-10-1), who is recognized for knocking out Tyson in a 2005 match, sent Tyson into retirement at the tail end of his career with that victory. McBride retired in 2011.
Last November after former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson defeated Roy Jones Jr. in an exhibition match, Holyfield had hoped to take on Tyson, but the event failed to come together.
