Report: Tyson-Holyfield rematch being discussed

Mike Tyson has a tentative deal with boxing promoter Don King to make a comeback this year, perhaps against Evander Holyfield, according to an online report.

Tyson, who last fought in 2005 and lost three of his final four bouts, is 43 years old. Holyfield is 47.

According to Ringside Report, the initial plan calls for Tyson and Holyfield to face off for the third time but Tyson, 50-6 with 44 knockouts, may opt to tune up first against a lesser-known opponent, which would push any subsequent bouts back into 2011.

Holyfield has signed to fight South African Francois Botha, 41, in Las Vegas on April 17.
