According to The Scotsman, former four-time heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield (44-10-2, 29KOs), 51-years-old, is interested in a comeback fight against Scottish prospect Gary Cornish (17-0, 9KOs).
Holyfield has been inactive since a May 2011 knockout win over Brian Nielsen in Denmark. Cornish, 26-years-old, turned pro in April of 2011.
Promoter Frank Warren is going to approach the British Boxing Board of Control about granting Holfield a license to fight in Britian this summer.
A spokesperson for Warren told the paper: “An enquiry has been made to Holyfield’s camp and they are interested. An application will also shortly be lodged with the British Boxing Board of Control. We think Cornish is a great prospect and someone worth getting behind. A fight of this magnitude would propel him into the limelight.”
