After Mike Tyson’s successful return to boxing, fans have been wondering what could be next. Evander Holyfield says that he is a strong candidate for Mike’s next opponent, apparently already being in talks for the fight.

The first fight between Holyfield and Tyson is one of the most infamous boing fights of all time. It was the bout that saw the notorious ear-biting incident on Tyson, something that still lived on even ahead of Mike’s recent comeback.

Even leading up to that fight with Roy Jones Jr., fans were wondering if there were room for Mike to fight Evander. Both men announced their return around similar points in time, and it seemed inevitable that they would fight again.
