Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield step into the ring for a rematch in May after Tyson claimed that terms had been agreed between the two veteran prizefighters.
The rematch comes months after Tyson stepped into the ring with Roy Jones Jr. in November.
“I just want everybody to know, the fight is on with me and Holyfield,” Tyson said on Instagram Live. “Holyfield’s a humble man, I know that. And he’s a man of God, but I’m God’s man. And, listen, I’m going to be successful on May 29th.”

Recently, it was claimed by Holyfield’s camp that Tyson turned down $25 million for a rematch.
“We thought this was a done deal but it quickly fell apart when Tyson’s people declined all offers,” Holyfield’s manager Kris Lawrence said. “We were negotiating in good faith all along and it appears we just ended up wasting our time.”
Now that the fight is on — who do y’all think will walk away as the victor?
