Former heavyweight destroyer Mike Tyson has stated that a rumoured trilogy clash with old nemesis Evander Holyfield ‘would be awesome for charity’.
The 53-year-old Tyson, who bowed out of professional boxing after a sixth round retirement defeat to Irishman Kevin McBride back in 2005, has captured worldwide headlines of late with a series of viral training videos and photos.
‘Iron Mike’ told TMZ that he is uncertain whether he will step through the ropes again though raising a large sum for charity by locking horns with Holyfield for a third time could prove enticing.
“I’m getting in shape. I feel really good,” said the former undisputed world heavyweight champion. “I’m just having fun, looking good, showing off my new body. Anything is possible. My ego is starting to get elated. We’ll see.
“There’s a lot of people out there who need help and something like that could help a lot of people. That would make a lot of money for charity. That’s what I’ve embarked on – a life of charity and gratitude.
“I don’t know if me and Evander will ever get in the ring, but that would be awesome for charity. Imagine two ‘arch-enemies’ doing it for the humanity of the people less fortunate than ourselves. What would that be like? That’s never been done.
“Anyone that’s going to contribute to charity, they’re welcome to come and challenge me.”
