ADDIS ABABA – FORMER heavyweight world champion Evander Holyfield’s charity bout in Ethiopia has been postponed to allow time for a bigger event to be prepared, officials told AFP on Tuesday.

The match, to raise funds for AIDS charities, was initially set to take place in Addis Ababa on July 26, before being rescheduled for September 11 – the Ethiopian New Year – after a request from the government.

‘The promoters are working hard to make a real and spectacular event,’ Motuma Temesgen, an official from Ethiopia’s government communication affairs office, told AFP.

‘Holyfield and Sammy Retta will fight in Addis Ababa on October 30 while five other fights will also take place on the same day,’ he said. Read more.
