Evander Holyfield demands trilogy fight with Mike Tyson!

From Trevor Lake

58 year old Evander "The Real Deal" Holyfield has officially called out 54 year old "Iron" Mike Tyson for a trilogy fight.

Holyfield said "A fight with me would be a global event and the only fight that anyone wants to see is a fight between us!" continuing "there is absolutely no reason why we shouldn't make it happen"

Tyson recently confirmed that he will be returning to the ring, following his exhibition fight with Roy Jones Jr in an eight-round bout last November.

Former undisputed Heavyweight champ and Tyson foe, Lennox Lewis, has also expressed an interest in stepping back in the ring to reignite some former rivalries.

Tyson lost in his fights with both Holyfield and Lewis, losing twice to Holyfield, and by knockout to Lewis in a one-sided fight which was ended by the Brit with a devastating right-hand cross to leave "Iron" Mike ironed out on the canvass in the eighth round.

Tyson was famously disqualified in the Holyfield rematch for biting off a chunk of his opponents ear and spitting it out on to the canvass.

From the rumblings stateside it certainly sounds like these former foes will be meeting in the ring soon.
