The 57-year-old former cruiserweight and heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield has announced he will return to boxing.
The statement was revealed after his greatest arrival Tyson recently disclosed that he is also planning to put his boxing gloves back on to compete in charity exhibition fights.
The four-time world heavyweight champion will fight in exhibition bouts for charity campaign, ‘Unite 4 Our Fight,’ in the coming months.
Sharing a video of himself training, the 57-year-old revealed he will be raising money for charity campaign Unite 4 Our Fight.
“Are you ready? The moment you’ve all been waiting for. The Champ is back!” he wrote.
“I’d like to announce that I will be making a comeback to the ring. I will be fighting in exhibition matches for a great cause: #Unite4OurFight.
Evander Holyfield remains the only boxer in history to win the undisputed championship in two weight classes. He enjoyed a glittering career in boxing, with notable wins against Mike Tyson, George Foreman, and many others.
‘Iron Mike’ plans to take part in four round exhibition fights for charity, and is currently training with cardio and weight sessions, while also working on boxing pads.
“I’ve been working out, I’ve been trying to get in the ring, I think I’m going to box some exhibitions and get in shape.” he told rapper T.I on Instagram Live.
Holyfield and Tyson met twice in the 1990s, with their second showdown providing one of the most shocking moments in boxing history.
The pair have since become great friends and have been pictured together on numerous occasions.
They last shared a ring together in February, as star guests for Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder part 2 – at the same Las Vegas venue where their infamous rematch occurred.
