According to representatives of Mike Tyson, the fight between him and Evander Holyfield is not happening in May.
His camp says he "misspoke."
"We thought this was a done deal but it quickly fell apart when Tyson's people declined all offers," said Kris Lawrence, Evander Holyfield's manager. "We were negotiating in good faith all along and it appears we just ended up wasting our time."
Just days prior, Tyson shared the following via his social media:
"There's a small, fundamental difference to get some paperwork done, and then it's on to the races with me and Evander. I've learned so much. We don't need promoters. What's a promoter? Overrated cheerleader?" he said.
"I just want everyone to know, the fight is on with me and Holyfield. Holyfield's a humble man, I know that, and he's a man of God, but I'm God's man, and I'm listening, and I'm gonna be successful May 29."
