Holyfield vs Tyson III “Signed, Sealed And Delivered” According To Zab Judah

According to former two-weight champ and good Mike Tyson buddy Zab Judah, we can all get ready for the next installment of two things: Tyson’s hugely successful exhibition tour, and the third fight in the Tyson-Evander Holyfield rivalry. Judah spoke with Metro.co.uk, and Zab said the fight is basically all done, with Tyson now “training every day and Evander training every day.”

If what Zab is saying is 100-percent legit – and there is no reason to doubt Judah – Tyson and Holyfield will soon be meeting in a ring some 24 years after they last fought. And we all know what happened back then, in the infamous “Bite Fight.” Now aged 54 and 58 respectively, Tyson and Holyfield will surely avoid any X-rated stuff in what will be billed as the trilogy fight (even if it will in actuality be an exhibition).

There has been word that this exhibition might take place in the Middle East, with Holyfield recently saying he feels the fight would generate something like $200 million. Who knows, maybe it will. Zab says the fight is a done deal.

“The fight is made, the fight is done, Mike Tyson versus Evander Holyfield part three, amazing,” Judah said. “Everything about that fight interests me, you just got to look at [fights] one and two and there’s no doubt why you wouldn’t want to watch number three, no doubt. The fight is signed, sealed and delivered and Mike is training every day and Evander is training every day and both men are coming in there to do their job, they are not playing, brother. It’s going down, it’s going to be real. It’s going to be a great fight for the third time. It’s going to be in Dubai, that’s what I’m hearing.”

Until we see an official announcement there will be no way of knowing how “real” the fight will be; if it actually happens at all. If the third bout does come off, it will surely be an exhibition affair, but maybe one without head-guards and maybe with smaller gloves than were used in the hugely successful Tyson-Roy Jones bout that took place in November (and pulled in approx 1.6 million PPV buys in the US).

Let’s face it, we WILL watch if Tyson, who is 0-2 against Holyfield, fights “The Real Deal” again. Some fans have grown tired of these currently all the rage exhibition gigs, while others, those who truly enjoyed Tyson-Jones, are thirsty for more. Notalgia sells and it sells big. Holyfield-Tyson III could dwarf Tyson-Jones.

  1. This fight will be highway robbery to any and all fans who fall for this charade. You can do a whole lot more with your $99.95 than watch two guys spar in the gym with a predetermined winner of the fight. This has to be another draw or a Tyson victory for his promotional exhibition tours to be successful.

  2. Was it me or was the Jones vs Tyson fight a let down? If this happens w/
    Holyfield vs Tyson 3 I’m out. I’m hoping these historic warriors go all out and produce the actual fight we all are wanting. It seems the exhibitions are for display only. Hoping I am wrong

    • Too each his own. I’d rather see Fury/Joshua
      Then Fury/Holfield
      And iron Mike/Joshua

      With the 2 winners battling it out for a belt of some kind.

  3. Wonder if Holyfield still has Tyson’s measure, or if Tyson has retained more skill and speed over the years. Will be interesting, but dont think there will be an official winner.

  4. nice to see two of the greatest fighters compete again gives hope to all those 50 year old guys thinking life is over

    • Right on two of boxings greatest heavyweight champions it takes alot of courage to step into that ring put your life on the line for the entertainment of others nothing but respect to these great champions in their fiftys for bringing back boxings greatness exhibitions or not IRON MIKE TYSON ROY JONES JR EVANDER THE REAL DEAL HOLYFIELD GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND THANK YOU !

  5. These guys might be old, but they are still a master of their craft. Anyone that thinks it wouldn’t be interesting, probably hasn’t seen Tysons earlier fights especially in the early years!!

    • Basically we would like to see Holyfield fight tyson fury not Mike Tyson is the same as it was bad fights
