However, this week it has been revealed that the former boxer (retired in 2011) has arranged a match against Glenn McCrory, former cruiserweight champion in the 1980s.
This was stated by the British in statements collected by the media talkSPORT. “I spoke to Evander on the phone the other night and he said he would fight me,” McCrory said. The 56-year-old ex-wrestler, in fact, pointed to a possible date in April.
