Mike Tyson slams Evander Holyfield's representative over failed fight and insists he is still open to trilogy with rival

MIKE TYSON has insisted he is still up for a huge trilogy fight against old rival Evander Holyfield.

But Iron Mike has slated the 58-year-old's representatives for failing to make the fight happen.

Tyson returned to the ring this weekend to take on Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition bout.

The showdown between the pair – with a combined age of 105 – ended as a draw.

But the ex-heavyweight champion confirmed after the draw that he will fight again.

Holyfield's name was immediately mentioned as an option – but he is set to make a sensational boxing comeback to fight Glenn McCrory in April.

Tyson said: "Maybe Evander needs to talk to me because every time my business associates talk to his business associates, it doesn't turn out well.

"If you could see what we made tonight, if these guys really cared about the welfare of Evander, they would've had this fight with Evander.

"Or maybe they could do another whoever he's with is handling it totally wrong."

Tyson has been accused of being too 'scared' to rematch Holyfield after he snubbed the offer a trilogy fight.

SunSport has pulled together a list of the next five opponents that Tyson could face.

George Foreman has even tipped Tyson to win a world title following his comeback.

He said: “If he gets in shape like he’s in now, and then gets his timing back, and all the other things fall into place, he can have an opportunity to fight for the title."
