MOSCOW, May 17 (R-Sport) - It has been 16 years since Mike Tyson bit off a chunk of Evander Holyfield’s ear, but the two old rivals could now meet again at a world title fight, albeit as friendly spectators.
Both will be encouraged to attend four-belt heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko’s bout with Russia’s Alexander Povetkin in Moscow later this year, the fight’s organizer Andrei Ryabinsky told R-Sport on Friday.
“Absolutely definitely I will make an offer to Mike Tyson to come. I will definitely also make an offer to Evander Holyfield,” he said.
Ryabinsky did not say whether they would be paid.
The pair reconciled and embraced in February when Tyson attended a promotional event for Holyfield’s line of barbecue sauce.

We have witnessed the total defeat of western Ukraine, Western nationalists and the West in general, which made the unfortunate decision to support the anti-government activity. They failed to realize that the collapse of Yanukovych means the collapse of Ukrainian unity. They set fire to their own home and planted a time bomb under Ukraine’s territorial integrity.
