CHICAGO, June 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Boxing legend Evander Holyfield, who will be inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame this coming weekend, has selected Chicago-based Icon LLC as his exclusive marketing and licensing agency, effective immediately.
Holyfield, the only four-time heavyweight champion in boxing history, will be inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in Canastota, NY this Saturday, June 11. Icon LLC President John Michael Lee will handle all of Holyfield's marketing.
"Evander has been one of the most successful fighters of all time," said Lee. "Now, as a Hall of Famer, coupled with his intense workout regimen that has him looking as fit as he did 20 years ago, we're excited to assist him with sponsorship and licensing deals that make sense for a world-class athlete of his stature."
Holyfield, 54, officially retired as a boxer in 2012 after a career that included four heavyweight titles, 47 professional wins and an Olympic bronze medal captured during the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles.
