Evander Holyfield calls out Mike Tyson for trilogy fight

Evander Holyfield calls out Mike Tyson for trilogy fight

Mike Tyson is ready to fight Evander Holyfield again in his next exhibition fight after his draw with Roy Jones Jr. on Saturday night. "I wasn't getting in the ring for less than $25 million".

It's not clear who the man was but sources said that Tyson's people recognized him from a previous incident where he tried something similar.

In what turned out to be a fantastically entertaining exhibition contest, Mike Tyson was denied victory through eight two-minute rounds after the judges scored the bout a draw.

Speaking on it, Briggs said, "If they call me, I gotta get my s**** together".

Tyson was exhausted two hours afterward, but also clearly energized as he recounted his emotions with his wife and team looking on.

"In a flawless world, I'm a missionary", he said.

ROY JONES JR: He hit harder. His head hurts. Everything hurts when it made contact.

Meanwhile, Shannon Briggs turned to social media. "But a fight with me (and Tyson) would be a global event, and the only fight that anyone wants to see is a fight between us".

As part of the undercard, former National Basketball Association point guard Nate Robinson was knocked out by YouTuber Jake Paul.

Tyson said he no longer had "the fighting guts or the heart" after he quit in a dismal loss to journeyman Peter McBride in his final bout. We're sure MJF must've been content with what he saw in the ring, even though he didn't really appreciate the pre-fight blitz. That said, Tyson might opt to enter the ring against any other boxer.

Tyson's professional career may have been famously uneven, but his exhibition bout with Jones attracted more attention thanks to training video, in which the 54-year-old "Iron Mike" was looking rather sharp.
