After some BACK & FORTH from both camps, it has been CONFIRMED that the Mike Tyson/ Evander Holeyfield fight is INDEED happening in May!
“I just want everybody to know the fight is on with me and Holyfield,” Tyson said during an IG Live session with Haute Living. “Holyfield’s a humble man I know that and he’s a man of God but I’m God’s man. Listen, I’m going to be successful May 29,” he added.
Just a DAY BEFORE word came out that Tyson had turned down a $25 million deal to appear in the ring against Holyfield. Holyfield’s manager, Kris Lawrence, said that negotiations between the two fell apart. “We were negotiating in good faith all along and it appears we just ended up wasting our time,” Lawrence said. But it seems all has been RESOLVED and the fight is BACK ON…for now!
