Welcome, sounds like Mike Tyson Vs. Evander Holyfield Dead … Evander’s camp says negotiations for a 3rd fight between boxing Xing legends have fallen apart.

Tyson did not name his opponent – but all indications point to his old nemesis, 58-year-old Evander Holyfield.
Now, Evander’s camp confirms that both sides were in serious negotiations – “intense negotiations for several months” – but the deal eventually went south.
“Team Holyfield sincerely believed the deal was imminent, especially after its support was thrown behind the project by Hard Rock, and many other offers were offered to Team Tyson,” Holyfield’s camp said in a statement. .
“However, Team Tyson’s demand has recently become ineffective, and not as Mike Tyson originally agreed in a direct conversation with Holyfield.”
