Evander Holyfield Shows His Latest Training Ahead Of Potential Comeback

Evander Holyfield has shared his latest training video on Instagram, ahead of a potential comeback, with fans giving mixed reactions to his form.

There's been a lot of buzz in the last few months about the return to the ring of Mike Tyson, with the legendary heavyweight set to take on Roy Jones Jr in November.

Initially talk of Tyson's comeback was met with people hoping to see a third fight between him and long time rival Holyfield, and the former cruiserweight champion hasn't ruled out getting back in the ring.

Now he's posted his latest training video on social media, with fans not being able to agree if the 57-year-old is looking his best.

One Instagram user replied to the video saying, "I'm so sorry but you are still slow," with another adding, "As much as I always wanted Tyson-Holyfield 3, it would be a bad idea for you to do it now."

Another questioned "Am I the only one here seeing that his punch not in point?" Adding, "Haha Ook I no Holyfield that you have make history but this is not real moves."

And one person replied, "you gon get knocked out the ring like Bernard Hopkins."

Holyfield doesn't currently have any solid plans for a comeback but his former three time opponent Riddick Bowe said he'd like to fight his rival again, and Tyson.

"If the fans want to see me fight again, I'm fighting. I want to make fans happy," Bowe told the Sun, "It's official. Actually, let me put it this way: I am officially back and want to and will fight.

"Come on Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield..."
