“I’m a very confident person,” Evander tells TMZ Sports … “I think it’s gonna happen.”
But, Evander says there’s been movement — and it’s heading in the right direction.
Evander is 58. Tyson is 54.
Of course, the two first clashed back in 1996 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas — where Evander dominated Mike before securing a win via TKO in the 11th round.
The Tyson vs. Holyfield rematch went down in 1997 — and that’s when Mike famously feasted on Evander’s ears. Tyson was disqualified in the 3rd round.
Evander’s last sanctioned fight took place in 2011 when he was nearly 48 years old — defeating 46-year-old Danish heavyweight Brian Nielsen.
The Real Deal is hoping to find out … sending this message to his old rival.
“Let’s do it, baby! Simple as that. Let’s do it!”
