Evander Holyfield Set On His Money Grab, With Or Without Mike Tyson

Evander Holyfield is set to fight Kevin McBride in June in another of those old-men-against-the-world bouts. Meanwhile, Mike Tyson is still waiting.

Holyfield-McBridge is scheduled to take place June 5, per Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated. Holyfield, 58, hasn't fought since 2011. McBride, 47, is best known for knocking out Tyson in 2011 -- supposedly sending Tyson into retirement.

But Tyson started this sudden trend of older dudes returning to the ring when he defeated Roy Jones Jr. in a bout last November. Now, it appears, Tyson is waiting for another fight against Holyfield.

"I want Holyfield and I want Lennox Lewis this year," Tyson said on his Hotboxin' Podcast. "I want both of them. I want to get them both this year. I also want to box an exhibition with Tyson Fury. If I do that – even if I can get those two guys , I'll say, 'This is a wrap. I'm just gonna live life."

Holyfield (44-10-2) and Tyson fought twice in the 1990s, and Holyfield won both times. The 1997 matchup, of course, ended in a DQ win for Holyfield after Tyson famously bit off a piece of Holyfield’s ear.

Holyfield-McBride will consist of eight, two-minute rounds and be streamed on Triller, Mannix added.
