Mike Tyson confirmed the fight with Evander Holyfield back in March, but as negotiations fell through, Holyfield is set to face off with Irish boxer Kevin McBride in Miami on June 5 on the undercard of Teofimo Lopez and George Kambosos Jr.’s fight.
The former undisputed heavyweight champion, Evander Holyfield, will set foot in the ring for the first time in over 10 years against McBride, who’s famous for his TKO against Tyson back in 2005 when Tyson failed to come out for the 7th-round. This was the last fight in Tyson’s pro career.
“So if you can’t fight Tyson, you got to fight the last guy that knocked him out,” advisor to Holyfield, Kris Lawrence said. “It’s not like Evander went deep into the well and found some geriatric guy.”
Holyfield’s last fight was in 2011 when he beat Brian Nielsen with a 10th-round TKO. McBride, nine years Holyfield’s junior, also last fought in the same year knocking out in the 4th-round by Mariusz Wach.
Lawrence still thinks a fight between Holyfield and Tyson will take place in the future.
“It’s just too big not to happen,” Lawrence reported to USA TODAY Sports. “That would be the biggest show on earth, you know?”
The Holyfield-McBride fight is scheduled for eight, two-minute rounds to be held at Marlins Park, Miami.
