Mike Tyson Back With Don King? Returning to Ring?
5 years, 4 months ago
Promoter Don King shot down a rumor making the rounds Friday that he had a deal to promote former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson in a third fight with Evander Holyfield, but he was evasive about whether he was in talks with Tyson about a comeback against somebody else.
An Internet report citing "a source close to Tyson" said King had a tentative deal for Tyson to return later this year to face Holyfield, but if that didn't happen there was "a plan B."
"My man, that is just wishful thinking," King told ESPN.com on Friday when asked about a third Holyfield-Tyson fight. "It is not true. It is not true about no Tyson-Holyfield fight. That's wishful thinking. Maybe it's something I would do for old time's sake if they were interested in the fight, but I ain't doing that at this time. I have not even spoken to Evander Holyfield."
