It seems that the former champ, the only boxer to have defeated Mike Tyson twice, is back. Once a true champ who held the WBA title and every other notable title at once, Tyson had said last week
he was calling it a career. "The game's been good to me and I hope I've been good to the game," he told media days before his Friday, Oct. 19 birthday. "I'm 50 years old (then upcoming) and I've pretty much did everything that I wanted to do in boxing."
Evander Holyfield comeback
However, as TMZ reports
, he appears to have thought better of that. While Holyfield was leaving the Boa
, a club on Sunset Boulevard, he told them that he was simply confused about retirement and that in fact he feels he's still a contender. "I don't know," he said when asked how many years he may have left boxing. "It's one day at a time."
Holyfield last fought in May of 2011 when he beat Brian Nielsen in Denmark in the 10th round; his lifetime record is 44-10-2 with one no decision.
