A trilogy fight between Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield is “signed, sealed and delivered,” according to Tyson’s close friend Zab Judah. Tyson vs Holyfield Part 3 is ‘Signed, Sealed, and Delivered,’ Zab Judah Says A trilogy fight between Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield is “signed, sealed and delivered,” according to Tyson’s close friend Zab Judah. Holyfield admitted last month that he has been talking with rival Tyson about a legendary third matchup in Dubai. The purse for such a fight is reportedly valued at eight-figures. Judah, who has known Tyson for several years, hinted the fight will take place in the United Arab Emirates. Judah said his close friend is already preparing for the match and training hard. ‘The fight is made, the fight is done, Mike Tyson versus Evander Holyfield part three, amazing,” Judah told the Metro UK Newspaper. “Everything about that fight interests me, you just got to look at one and two and there’s no doubt why you wouldn’t want to watch number three, no doubt,” the former boxing champion continued. ‘The fight is signed, sealed, and delivered and Mike is training every day and Evander is training every day and both men are coming in there to do their job, they are not playing brother, there will be no playing,” Judah added. Tyson and Holyfield met twice in the 1990s, with the latter coming out on top in dramatic circumstances on both occasions. Holyfield defeated Tyson whilst acting as the underdog in 1996, while their rematch was filled with controversy after ‘Iron Mike’ was disqualified in the third round for biting his opponent’s ear.

The pair have put their rivalry aside in recent years and even developed a friendship. Both appeared in a 2013 Foot Locker commercial together where Tyson joked about giving Holyfield his ear back.

Tyson, meanwhile, returned to the ring in the back end of 2020 when he took on Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition bout, with the contest controversially ending in a draw. Holyfield has not fought professionally since 2011.

He defeated Brian Nielsen that year and retired from boxing in 2014 (Blitz, 2021).
