Last Saturday (November 28th), “Iron” Mike Tyson held Roy Jones Jr. to a draw in the Staples Center after coming out of retirement to fight. Just days later, Evander “The Real Deal” Holyfield announced his coming out of retirement to fight Glenn McCrory, in his first fight in a decade.
These two matchups have left boxing fans really wondering: did Tyson and Holyfield really come out of retirement just for these lackluster fights? Logically, it doesn’t make sense. That’s why I believe Tyson and Holyfield are building the hype and tension around a potential Tyson/Holyfield III.
We will just have to wait and see.
