The Fight Mike Tyson Is 'Scared' Of Ahead Of Boxing Comeback

Mike Tyson is apparently running scared of former foe Evander Holyfield ahead of his highly-anticipated boxing comeback.

Holyfield is also planning a comeback as the 58-year-old is training for his own bout with an opponent yet to be confirmed.

But if his team had their way, he'd be welcoming Tyson back to the squared circle later this month.

They claim the former heavyweight world champion turned down a fight against 'The Real Deal' to instead face 'Captain Hook'.

A source told TMZ: "It's not even about the money at this point, I think Tyson is scared.

"We've offered multiple times and Tyson vs. Holyfield is the fight that should happen."

But that's not the case according to the Brooklyn-born fighter who says he'd love to run it back.

He said: "That's always something that we can do if the people want it, if it's pragmatic enough, I'd love to do it."

Tyson and Holyfield have fought twice in the past. Holyfield beat Tyson to claim the WBA heavyweight world title back in November 1996.

They had a rematch eight months later where Tyson was infamously disqualified for biting Holyfield's ear.
