Danny Williams reckons Mike Tyson will get the better of Evander Holyfield at the third time of asking

Tyson, 54, returned to the ring last November for an exhibition against former four-weight world champion Roy Jones Jr and looked impressive in his first outing in over 15 years.

And Danny Williams is backing Iron Mike to get the job done against Holyfield in brutal fashion.

Williams, who KO’d Tyson in 2004, told RT Sport: “Tyson, Holyfield trilogy is a great match!

“This fight will make over $100 million. Everyone is excited to see these two legends go to war again.

“I think Tyson will KO Holyfield! Tyson is looking great in sparring and pad work.”

The third instalment of Tyson vs Holyfield has been in the works since the former’s controversial draw with Jones Jr.


But according to Tyson’s good fried Zab Judah, the fight is a done deal.

The former IBF light welterweight champion told The Metro: “The fight is made, the fight is done, Mike Tyson versus Evander Holyfield part three, amazing.

“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 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.

Mike Tyson lost both of his meetings with Evander Holyfield

“Mike Tyson versus Evander Holyfield part three, it’s going down, it’s going to be real. It’s going to be a great fight for a third time.”

SunSport revealed last month that Tyson and Holyfield’s lucrative trilogy is on course to take place in Dubai.

Judah added: “It’s going to be in Dubai, that’s what I’m hearing. That’s what the advertisement said.”

Tyson and Holyfield’s first meeting took place in November 1996, with the former undisputed cruiserweight king scoring an 11th-round TKO victory over Iron Mike.

The pair rematched a year later but the fight ended in chaos as Tyson was disqualified in the third round for biting Holyfield’s ear.

The duo have since buried the hatchet and have attended multiple functions together.
