Could the Evander Holyfield – Mike Tyson trilogy fight really happen in 2021?
According to Holyfield, he is training for a “soon to be announced” fight with Tyson that will air on the pay-per-view service Triller.
Holyfield revealed the information to veteran boxing reporter Lance Pugmire of The Athletic during a recent training session, according to a report on Twitter.
“[Holyfield] tells me while training today that he expects to fight [Mike Tyson] for a third time in a soon-to-be-announced bout on [Triller] and when I asked him if the card would include [Teofimo Lopez], he responded that would be ‘cool,'” Pugmire wrote.
Holyfield then reportedly said, “Now excuse me, I have to go jump rope.”

Tyson recently made his comeback to boxing on November 28 against Roy Jones Jr. at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California. The event also featured YouTuber Jake Paul’s brutal knockout of former NBA Slam Dunk Champion Nate Robinson.
Both Holyfield and Tyson have expressed interest in a potential trilogy bout in the past, so it will be interesting to see if the two men finally meet again.
