Former Heavy Weight champion Evander Holyfield has once again caused controversy within the LGBT community after saying that Caitlyn Jenner is still Bruce.

Evander Holyfield has been slammed after referring to Caitlyn Jenner as Bruce, despite the former Olympian turned TV star announcing her name is now Caitlyn.

However Holyfield who has a history of bigoted views against gay people said after an impassioned acceptance speech by Jenner at the ESPYS awards, “I just know that’s Bruce Jenner and I’ll leave it at that”, according to BBC Newsbeat.

The boxer who once said that being gay wasn’t “normal” has been criticised by trans activists who maintain that it is inappropriate to use someone’s old name, when it’s been made clear that the person wants people to use a new name and pronouns to describe them.
