In a video released by Legends Only League, Tyson sent a stern warning to his rival Evander Holyfield, with whom he locked horns in the 90s.

In fact, Tyson was earlier supposed to confront Holyfield instead of Roy Jones Jr. in November 2020. But the fight fell through, and the duo couldn’t touch gloves inside the ring for a trilogy. However, ‘Iron’ Mike wants to fulfill his urge of fighting the ‘Real Deal’ in his next outing.

In this video, he said, “Maybe I wasn’t ready then, but I’m ready now. You know I’m ready now. I’m really, really ready now. I’m coming for you.”

Tyson showcased his intense movement and a flurry of punches whilst giving his monologue, and that added to the intensity of his words. Though he looked a tad slow against Roy Jones Jr., it may have served as the perfect way for him to loosen up ahead of his long-awaited third confrontation of ‘The Real Deal’.

Given the rise of retired boxers returning to the ring, there is no better time to book this fight than 2021.
