Evander Holyfield watched the fight over the weekend between Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr — and he says he wants another crack at Tyson.
“My side tried to make the fight happen and we got nothing but excuses,” Holyfield said in a news release. “Now I can see why he wanted a tuneup fight before thinking about fighting me.
“No more excuses. This is the fight that must happen for both our legacies. Saturday night you said you were ready to fight me, so sign the contract and get in the ring, Tyson. The world is waiting and it’s on you now. I’m ready.”

Tyson is not shying away from the challenge.
“Maybe Evander needs to talk to me because every time my business associates talk to his business associates, it doesn’t turn out well,” Tyson said after Saturday’s fight. “So, I don’t know. If you could see what we made tonight, if these guys really care about the welfare of Evander, they would have had this fight with Evander. Maybe we’ll do another, but whoever he’s with, whoever is handling him is totally wrong.”
