Mike Tyson with Evander Holyfield

Boxing legend Mike Tyson has revealed that a trilogy fight against rival Evander Holyfield will take place on May 29 despite rumours that talks between the two camps had fallen through.

The two previous encounters between the pair happened way back in 1996 and 1997, with The Real Deal winning the first by Technical Knock-Out.

The rematch was a controversial affair, with Tyson famously biting off part of Holyfield’s ear, leading to a disqualification.

Despite the large delay since their previous fights- and both being 58 and 54 respectively the two former heavyweight champions returned to training last year.
