FOUR-time world heavyweight boxing champion Evander Holyfield is set to arrive in Burnley as part of his first international speaking tour.

The ‘Real Deal’ is being brought to Turf Moor for a gala evening on September 28 by Halifax-based promoters Olexyfresh.

He will share some of his in-ring experiences, against the likes of George Foreman, Riddick Bowe and Larry Holmes, and take part in a question and answer session with fans.

Tickets for the event include a four-course meal and photo opportunity with the ex-champ. Promoters are also staging a sports auction and raffle on the night.
