Boxing legends, Mike Tyson, 54, and Evander Holyfield, 58, ‘in talks over a £200m trilogy fight in Dubai’. American boxing legends, Mike Tyson, 54, and Evander Holyfield, 58, are reportedly in talks over a £200million trilogy fight in Dubai.
This comes after Tyson made his long-awaited return to the ring in November to fight former four-weight world champion Roy Jones Jr, 52, in an exhibition clash.
Following the success of Tyson’s comeback, The Sun reports that Tyson and Holyfield are in discussions over a multi-million-pound bout in the Middle East
The publication understands that the proposed rematch would be in the region of £200 million.
Their rematch which came seven months after the original fight is still one of the craziest bouts in professional boxing history, after Iron Mike was disqualified after biting his rival’s ear.
Last month, Holyfield announced that his team was ‘talking to Mike’s leadership’ and pending a decision.
Last month, speaking to The Sun, Holyfield said, “The thing is that if it’s meant to be, it’s going to happen, either way, that’s what it is.”
‘I’m already preparing for this thing, I know it’s going to be this deal some day and I’m ready for it. I’m doing great.’
