Holyfield Returning to the Ring at Greenbrier

The Greenbrier Resort moves into the ring when its hosts a fight card next month headlining Evander Holyfield.

The "Redemption in America: The Journey Back Begins Now" event will be held January 22 at the four-star resort in southeastern West Virginia. The card will feature Holyfield against Sherman "Tank" Williams and six other fights.

In keeping with The Greenbrier's status, owner Jim Justice says the event will be a first-class, black-tie affair.

Justice says the boxers will participate in meet-and-greet opportunities and their training sessions will be open to the public.

Holyfield is a four-time heavyweight champion. The 48-year-old boxer says he will continue fighting until he regains the world heavyweight title.
