According to Triller’s Ryan Kavanaugh, Mike Tyson is afraid of getting knocked out by his everlasting nemesis Evander Holyfield and will not accept another bout against him.

Regarding Tyson, Kavanaugh added: “We’ve heard he’s terrified of fighting Evander.

“There has been a lot of back-and-forth, and Mike has a big payout waiting for him if he fights on Thanksgiving. One of the biggest paydays he’s ever had!”

For the first time in 15 years, Tyson returned to the ring last year, aged 54, to meet fellow veteran Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition bout.

Holyfield, 58, will make his comeback on Saturday night, replacing Oscar De La Hoya, 48, in a battle against UFC legend Vitor Belfort, on short notice.

“However, we can’t seem to get it moving. Mike is now too scared, according to a number of reliable sources. He thinks Evander would knock him out.”

When they first fought in 1996, Holyfield stopped Tyson; their rematch a year later will go down in boxing history because Tyson was disqualified for biting off a portion of his opponent’s ear.

Holyfield, who was one of only two guys to win world titles at cruiserweight and heavyweight, hasn’t fought in a decade.

“We’ve made an offer to Mike,” Kavanaugh said of a rematch with Holyfield.

Holyfield said last year that he had not given up on his rivalry with Tyson.

“I’m not sure, you’d have to ask him!” he replied.

“I’d never ask somebody to do something they don’t want to do.  But it’s for a good cause. It’ll be a win-win-win if we can figure something out that works for everyone.”
