Evander Holyfield Responds To Mike Tyson Again With Even Better Training Video
Last week, the 57-year-old, who intends to take part in a series of exhibition fights for charity, responded to Tyson in his own 'I'm back' video - alongside the caption: "I told you I had something for you."
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.
Holyfield captioned the below clip: "Team Holyfield preparing for battle."
Now this is exciting stuff!

Evander Holyfield has publicly welcomed a charity fight with Mike Tyson but wants a 'no knockout' rule inserted into a potential bout.
"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."
My 1st week back in the gym and I feel great I'm looking forward to stepping up my training sessions and intensity as I prepare for my fight.

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.
He really does look in fantastic condition.
