DILLIAN WHYTE believes Mike Tyson “just needs to relax” before his proposed return – but believes that Evander Holyfield has had a better career than Iron Mike.
The two fighters – now in their 50s – play sports and get back into shape.
The conversation continues to rumble, suggesting that they will return to the ring once more.
The pair fought twice in the 1990s, with Holyfield winning each time.
But Brit Whyte, in line for his own shot at a world heavyweight title, thinks it’s a bad idea – before explaining why he believes Holyfield was the better of the two heavyweight kings.
He told The AK and Barak Show, “I think Mike just needs to relax. Evander Holyfield looks even worse, he looks slow.
“These guys had tough fights, they fought real heavyweight fights.
“I think Evander Holyfield should be higher than Mike Tyson in history. Holyfield fought everyone. He fought Lennox Lewis, Mike Tyson.
“He fought Michael Moore and he fought Riddick Bowe. In addition, he also fought George Foreman.
“Mike Tyson hasn’t even fought all of these guys. He only fought Lennox Lewis and he lost to Lennox Lewis.
“I believe in Evander Holyfield, there is a case when he says he has won both fights against Lennox Lewis. ”
Tyson broke the Internet with a series of training clips showing his speed and power.
But soon after Holyfield followed suit with his own video – although he dismantled it and replaced it with an improved version after being scheduled.
And there was even more embarrassment for the four-time heavyweight champion when behind-the-scenes images seemed to show him moving slowly and painfully.
Anyway, Holyfield threw his name into the mix to face Tyson, revealing that he would be open to a trilogy fight – but only if it was for charity and that he had received a call from his former rival.
