Four-time heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield and his company Real Deal Sports and Entertainment announced on Friday that the Real Deal Championship Boxing series will return to Louisville on Thursday, September 28.

The event will be held at the Crowne Plaza Louisville Airport Hotel and will include Louisville boxer Carlos Dixon, who won his fight during Real Deal’s “Tribute to Ali” event in June — Dixon’s professional boxing debut.

“We said we were committed to building boxing back in Louisville and I hope this shows the fans that we are true to our word,” Holyfield stated in a press release announcing the news. “There is a lot of undiscovered talent in the city and we will continue to honor the legacy of the great Muhammad Ali by bringing our events to his hometown.”

Tickets will go on sale Tuesday, September 5 through TheRealDealBoxing.com
