To those who feel Evander Holyfield should find safer pursuits at the age of 57, he has a straightforward answer. ‘They have their opinion and I have mine,’ he said. ‘I prefer to follow mine.’ And so the man they called the Real Deal is looking to strike another. If he has his way, you suspect that will be with Mike Tyson, who has evidently lost none of his sense of timing. That relates as much to Tyson’s ability to hit pads cleanly at 53 as it does his decision to release workout videos in close proximity to those uploaded by Holyfield. Purely a coincidence says Holyfield, and yet it is a fact that a third meeting between two old greats is being discussed by both sides. Terming it a fight might be a stretch, given Holyfield claims he is only after a three-round exhibition in ...
