TWO all-time heavyweight boxing legends, Evander Holyfield and Mike Tyson are close to agreeing a deal for them to meet for a third time.
Holyfield who retired in 2011 has been filmed training after Tyson, who retired in 2005 posted his first training video.
At the moment, Holyfield is leading 2-0 in their matches, but this is unlikely to be a world title fight, rather an exhibition match over perhaps four rounds for charity.
In financial terms this could be a goldmine and millions would be expected to watch a televised bout.
Since the two met in the ring all of those years ago they have become close friends even though Tyson did take a lump out of Holyfield’s ear in the second meeting.
According to Holyfield talks have been ongoing and an agreement is close to being finalised and he wants to show that regardless of age, it is perfectly possible to keep your body fit and healthy.
