The World Heavyweight title unification re-match between Lennox Lewis and Evander Holyfield could now be staged in November at a Los Vegas venue, the British fighter's promoter, Panos Eliades, said yesterday. Meanwhile, Oliver McCall, who is the only man to have beaten Lewis, could be freed from a jail in Martinsville, Virginia, on 1 May, provided he remains on a drug rehabilitation programme. He was convicted in October last year and sentenced to a year in jail for resisting arrest and assaulting a law enforcement officer.

FBI agents have discovered human bones in the yard of a New Jersey home during their search for a missing Russian boxer. Sergei Kobozev, a former member of the Soviet national boxing team who emigrated to the United States in 1991, was last seen in November 1995.
