Former #1 IBF light heavyweight and world title challenger Rico “Suave” Hoye (23-3, 15 KO’s) has decided to return to the sport of boxing but this time campaign in the heavyweight division. The 38-year-old Hoye retired after a win over Akinyemi Laleye in a February 2009 cruiserweight fight. Chicago promoter Cynthia Tolaymat of CFC Promotions stated, “I am hoping to have Rico fight in Chicago before the summer ends. I would love to provide him a chance at reclaiming the #1 ranking in the world.” Hoye has put the word out that he is officially a free agent and looking for all challenges.
