Evander Holyfield welcomes a charity fight with Mike Tyson but wants a ‘no knockout’ rule inserted into a potential bout.Now in their 50’s, both Holyfield and Tyson have been training for a return to the ring in and it’s fuelled speculation of a potential trilogy bout. “I don’t have anything against Mike personally, the thing is I think it would be good for the sport and even though boxing is a rough sport, we can show people we can come together.” Tyson has gone on record to say he “feels unstoppable” and in the same shape he was in when he was in his prime but Holyfield, four years his senior, is also in “very good condition” according to the man himself. “We have to come up with something that is not a knockout grudge match. It’s not about who can beat who, but to show people we were some of the greatest fighters in our era and we’ve come together as men to do something for others. “Since we have both announced a comeback, a fight between me and Mike would definitely be the fight people want to see.” “My whole thing is I’m open, and I know that I want to do well for myself at age 57. I can definitely handle him. But Mike would have to want to do it as well. Holyfield won the first two, the second being because of Tyson taking a chunk out of his ear and being disqualified, and he’s keen on mixing it up again for a good cause.Advertisement “If we do this fight it would be great. I can still shoot the jab, I can still shoot the shots, but not like a killing thing, [not like] “I’m going to hurt you, I’m going to show you that I can knock him out”. Yet despite this, Holyfield does not want this fight to be about knockouts.“Yes, I want to fight Mike Tyson,” Holyfield told The Sun.
