It's Happening: Mike Tyson Is Officially Fighting Evander Holyfield On May 29th

Source - 54-year-old Mike Tyson has announced he will be fighting 58-year-old Evander Holyfield on May 29 -- despite Holyfield's camp saying negotiations were dead just 24 hours ago!!

"I just want everybody to know the fight is on with me and Holyfield," Tyson said during an IG Live session with Haute Living. "Holyfield's a humble man I know that and he's a man of God but I'm God's man. Listen, I'm going to be successful May 29."

Well that's that. Will I watch the fight May 29th? Absolutely. Am I excited about it? Not at all. Maybe the hype around the match will change that in the coming months, but for now I've got my fill. Seeing Tyson fight Roy Jones Jr. last year scratched the itch. It was cool...but not that cool. So unless Mike comes out swinging like a mad man I expect more of the same- just a couple old dudes reliving their past. Holyfield's team has yet to confirm the fight...

It was just yesterday that Evander's manager issued a statement saying talks had "fallen apart" between the two sides. "We were negotiating in good faith all along and it appears we just ended up wasting our time," Kris Lawrence said.

The dispute came down to money -- Holyfield's camp says Team Tyson wanted a huge cut … and even turned down a $25 million guarantee.

Regardless, it's going happen they're just playing hard ball. It's been 24 years since Mike bit Holyfields ear off and I'm sure he wants revenge. People don't forget. How wild would that be if Tyson did it again? They get in there and he bites the other ear off? Talk about going viral. Oh well. As long as Snoop is on the call I'll be tuning in. He can turn any fight into must-watch television…

Best of luck to these two in the on May 29th. They're going to need it. Now here's a video of what happened the last time they fought. Enjoy…
