Holyfield was rumoured to be in line to fight Tyson in a trilogy fight – but Roy Jones Jr is the man to face Iron Mike.

But Holyfield still has his own plans, and like Tyson, has shown he is still in terrific shape despite his age.

Holyfield recently uploaded a photo of him doing brutal hill sprints while behing held back with resistance bands by his personal trainer.

The former heavyweifght champion of the world captioned it: “In order to get stronger you must be willing to push yourself beyond your limits. #TEAMHOLYFIELD.”

Two weeks ago Holyfield brought Ukrainian legend Wladimir Klitschko into his training camp to help him prepare.

He posted a picture of the pair embracing in the gym on Instagram with the caption: “Surround yourself with greatness.”
