Iron Mike doesn’t want any of Evander’s smoke. Evander Holyfield’s team say Mike Tyson has rejected a $25 million guarantee to fight Holyfield on May 29 at Hard Rock Stadium.
“We thought this was a done deal but it quickly fell apart when Tyson’s people declined all offers,” Kris Lawrence told TMZ. “We were negotiating in good faith all along and it appears we just ended up wasting our time.” This news comes after Tyson announced on his podcast that he’s returning to the ring on May 29 at a big event at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. He didn’t name his opponent, but the implication was that it would be Holyfield. Team Holyfield sincerely believed a deal was imminent, especially after the Hard Rock threw its support behind the project, and there were multiple other offers conveyed to Team Tyson,” Holyfield’s camp said in a statement. “However, Team Tyson’s demands recently became untenable, and not what Mike Tyson had originally agreed on in direct conversations with Holyfield.”

Tyson posted on his Instagram account that he would never work with Triller again.
“Just to be clear there is no Tyson with Triller fight,” Tyson wrote on Instagram. “I don’t know any Triller executives personally. I don’t have a deal with Triller or any head executive representing them for the next event.
“I am a partner in Legends Only League and my next event is with my league. I will never do another event or any business with Triller so anyone misrepresenting that they own the rights to my name or my next event isn’t true. I am not with or ever will be with Triller’s Fight Club.”
Tyson Holyfield would have been quite the spectacle.
Sounds like Tyson isn’t interested in rehashing those crazy memories.
