    With 18 or 20 oz gloves. Holy is just too darn competitive. Him and Mike still have unresolved issues with one another, hence you alluded to it, ... Part 3! Unfished business!

    God no. thats all i need to see, 2 of my faves getting out of control in old man fights. im the same age as tyson, and i would rather not see them lose their dignity at this stage. but then again, i never lost all my money to divorce and child support, so who am i to keep a buck out their hands.

    I don’t know... I tend to agree that Holyfield is so competitive he might go on the attack which would provoke Tyson and then there’d be the old man fight of the century between 2 guys who even though they act like they don’t, they still have unfinished business with each other. I don’t want to see either one hurt or embarrassed.

    This would end badly. I suppose there is a part of everyone that wants to see the train wreck. But overall, no, I think it is a bad idea which will nonetheless probably happen.

    I didn't watch Tyson-Jones, and I have no interest in paying for other exhibition matches.

    Holyfield and Senator Mitt Romney should rematch and the winner can get Mike.

    Tyson might not be able to control himself in the exhibition fight against Holyfield because things in the past might keep haunting him. Holyfield should beware this and not trying to fight inside withTyson.

    I won't be watching anymore exhibitions. Worked matches with a known and predictable outcomes belong in the WWE. Much respect to Tyson and RJJ, but neither looked good. The only thing this "bout" solidified was the idea that Tyson would have KO'd Jones in their primes. The aesthetics of two old guys in the ring, is entirely unappealing.

    This. Holy is one of those guys that will turn a pillowfight into a gladiatorial contest to the last blood.
