Release time:2021-03-24 Publisher:South Asia Development

Iron Mike confirmed the fight with his former heavyweight rival 'is on' after Holyfield's camp claimed earlier this week that the Baddest Man on the Planet had snubbed the bout

Mike Tyson appeared to have performed a U-turn over his showdown with Evander Holyfield after confirming that the trilogy fight "is on".

Earlier this week, Holyfield's camp claimed Tyson had snubbed a £21.5m offer to lock horns with his old heavyweight rival - branding negotiations "a waste of time".

But Iron Mike said he fully expects the clash to go ahead in late May once a few formalities are finalised.

And he went as far as to predict the victory that evaded him in his two previous clashes with Holyfield during their legendary 1990s bouts.

“I see that happening in the near future, me and Holyfield,” Tyson said, speaking to Haute Living on an Instagram Live.
