Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield are in talks over a sensational rematch in November - with the action going down in the Middle East.

Tyson and Holyfield squared off for the first time in 1996 before their rematch a year later, famous for 'Iron Mike' biting a piece of Holyfield's ear off.

Both men have teased fans over the last month with training footage and per The Sun, a trilogy bout is on the horizon.


'The Real Deal' told The Times: "It's better you do it [comeback] with people who have been around like you.

"I don't want to go and fight someone trying to make a name for themselves.

"People want to see me and [Riddick] Bowe, of course Mike Tyson and maybe Lennox [Lewis], that would be good. I'll spar with anyone."

The former world champion then went on state his fights will be just three rounds.

"Look, we are going three rounds," the 57-year-old explained. "It's not 10 or 15. Maybe there'll be headgear.

"My intention is not to knock someone out, but you've got 16oz gloves and you get good shots in sparring too."

Despite Holyfield and Tyson both sharing training footage on line, it's fair to say Tyson's footage has impressed more.

Holyfield looked sluggish in a recent training session but the Alabama native was quick to insist he'll be fine once back in the ring.

"I look after myself. I'm OK with head shots. You better believe that if he goes at my head I'm going at his. I'm going to be shooting at his head anyway with jabs.

"The difference is if I hurt him I'm not going to rush in and try and get him out of there. I'll pull back. This is a way for me to talk to young people."
