Holyfield / Lewis Rematch Set

The heavyweight championship unification rematch between Lennox Lewis and Evander Holyfield will be Nov. 6 at Mandalay Bay hotel-casino, according to a published report.

The Lewis-Holyfield fight will be a joint venture between the Las Vegas Hilton and Mandalay Bay, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Saturday.

A source told the newspaper the casinos and promoters would not confirm the fight because all the details have not been worked out.

Earlier, it was reported that Mandalay Bay had offered $10 million to host the fight

Promoter Don King has asked the Nevada Athletic Commission for either Nov. 6 or Nov. 13 for the fight.

Lewis-Holyfield II would be a rematch of the controversial draw in New York on March 13 in what most observers thought Lewis won by a comfortable margin. The outcome prompted several investigations and proposals for reform in the scoring of boxing.
