Mike Tyson hasn’t ruled out Evander Holyfield trilogy — ‘I’d love to do it’

Their combined age is 112 (just sayin’).

Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson has yet to compete against Roy Jones Jr. but is already considering his next big move in the “sweet science.” While that might change if “Iron” is too rusty on Nov. 28 in California, the video game icon still hasn’t forgotten about his Evander Holyfield trilogy.

“That’s always something that we can do if the people want it,” Tyson told Jim Gray (via MMA Fighting). “If it’s pragmatic enough, I’d love to do it.”

Sounds like the “Real Deal” may get his wish after all.

Holyfield won their 1996 showdown by way of eleventh-round technical knockout then captured a disqualification victory the following June in Las Vegas when the erratic Tyson turned cannibal midway through the third frame.

“Let’s wait until this is over and then discuss that,” Tyson said about his in-ring future. “That would be a novelty, me using my skills, matching my skills now against the best heavyweights in the world, that would be mind-boggling.”
