Holyfield reenters WBA rankings

12:12 pm on 3 December 2008

Former four-time heavyweight boxing champion Evender Holyfield has re-entered the WBA rankings at number 12, clearing the way for the 46-year-old ring legend to face WBA heavyweight champion Nikolai Valuev in Zurich later this month.

Holyfield, who is coming off a decision loss to Sultan Ibragimov in a WBO title challenge last year, replaces JD Chapman who was dropped from the ratings.

Meanwhile New Zealanders Shane Cameron is ranked 7th by the WBO and 15th by the IBF, but doesn't appear in the rankings for the main two organisations the WBC and WBA.
