One potential opponent is 53-year-old Mike Tyson with a trilogy fight between the two on the cards.

Iron Mike is planning a similar step out of retirement and hinted he would be open to the contest.

He famously bit a chunk out of Holyfield’s ear in their 1997 rematch.

Holyfield has also been challenged to a scrap by Riddick Bowe.
