Evander Holyfield Responds To Mike Tyson Again With Even Better Training Video

Evander Holyfield has sent another clear message to old foe Mike Tyson as they prepare to get in the ring - this time with a brand new training video.

And days later, Holyfield has now posted another clip in training camp alongside trainers Wladimir Klitschko and Antonio Tarver, who appear to be have been enlisted to help the former heavyweight champion.

"My whole thing is I'm open, and I know that I want to do well for myself at age 57. I can definitely handle him. But Mike would have to want to do it as well.

"We have to come up with something that is not a knockout grudge match. It's not about who can beat who, but to show people we were some of the greatest fighters in our era and we've come together as men to do something for others.

"I don't have anything against Mike personally, the thing is I think it would be good for the sport and even though boxing is a rough sport, we can show people we can come together."

So what does Tyson think of all this speculation? The 53-year-old has also welcomed a fight against Holyfield, saying the bout would be "awesome for charity."

"That would be awesome for charity," Tyson said on TMZ Live.

"Can you imagine me and (Holyfield) going in the ring together? Hey listen, there are a lot of people out there that need help and something like that could help a lot of people that are in need of help."

'Iron Mike' has posted a number of clips ahead of his potential return to the ring, including an impressive insight into his physical condition.
