Holyfield’s return to the ring inspired him to retrain, which led to his disastrous fight with ex-UFC champion Vitor Belfort, 44.

Belfort thrashed the veteran former champion all over the ring before the referee called a halt to the charade.

Tyson, 55, is enraged, believing that a lucrative but unnecessary trilogy with Holyfield is dead in the water, and has set his sights on Lewis, 56. “I want a fight,” he told ESNews.

“We were supposed to go with Evаnder Holyfield, but Evаnder f***ed up the money, so we hаve to do it with Lennox now.” ”
