Tyson, Holyfield may reunite for Moscow fight

Moscow, May 17 (IANS/RIA Novosti) It has been 16 years since Mike Tyson bit off a chunk of Evander Holyfield’s ear, but the two old rivals could now meet again at a world title fight, albeit as friendly spectators.

Both will be encouraged to attend four-belt heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko’s bout with Russia’s Alexander Povetkin in Moscow later this year, the fight’s organiser Andrei Ryabinsky told R-Sport Friday.

“Absolutely definitely I will make an offer to Mike Tyson to come. I will definitely also make an offer to Evander Holyfield,” he said.

Ryabinsky did not say whether they would be paid.

The pair reconciled and embraced in February when Tyson attended a promotional event for Holyfield’s line of barbecue sauce.
