McBride fights tonight for first time since Tyson win

Kevin McBride is quietly returning to action tonight for the first time since stopping Mike Tyson after six rounds last June. McBride, 33-4-1, will appear on the Lamon Brewster-Sergei Lyakhovich undercard in Cleveland tonight taking on the non-descript Byron Polley, 19-5-1, in a ten-rounder. It is hardly the type of follow-up to be expected in light of one of the biggest upsets of 2005. Also on promoter Don King's undercard are several notable Ohio boxers in tune-up bouts: ex-batnamweight champion Tim Austin returns at 124.5 pounds to face Eric Aiken 14-4; heavyweight Ray Austin is matched against Jeremy Bates, 21-10-1 and hweavyweight Larry Donald will lock horns with Stacy Frazier, 14-5. Other than the main event, none of these bouts will be televised.
