'Of course' - Evander Holyfield ready to fight Mike Tyson | DAZN News Global

The two former world champion heavyweights could meet for a third time.

Evander Holyfield still wants a trilogy rematch with Mike Tyson despite a one-sided defeat to Vitor Belfort.

The former UFC champion needed less than three minutes to stop Holyfield, who struggled to land a punch or dodge his opponent’s efforts.

Despite the state of his performance, and Mike Tyson’s relatively impressive performance in his own comeback against Roy Jones Jr, Holyfield wants a third fight.

After the fight, The 58-year-old praised Belfort, saying: “The guy pushed me, the guy is strong.

“But I wasn’t hurt. There wasn’t no shot that hurt me real bad. He got me with a shot and I was off-balance. I’m not hurt. It’s kind of sad.

“I think it was a bad call, he shouldn’t have stopped the fight that quick.”

Of whether he would still entertain a fight with Tyson, he said: “Of course I would.”

Tyson lost to Holyfield twice in the 1990s, stopping Tyson in November 1996, and then won when Tyson bit his ear in summer the following year.
