Old rivals Tyson, Holyfield encouraged to attend fight together

MOSCOW, May 17 (UPI) -- The organizer of a Moscow boxing match between Wladimir Klitschko and Alexander Povetkin said Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield will be encouraged to attend.

Andrei Ryabinsky said the former rivals will be asked attend the match together, 16 years after Tyson bit off a chunk of Holyfield's ear during a fight Tyson ultimately lost, RIA Novosti reported Friday.

The Russian fight is planned later this year.

"Absolutely definitely I will make an offer to Mike Tyson to come. I will definitely also make an offer to Evander Holyfield," Ryabinsky told R-Sport.

Tyson and Holyfield were reunited and embraced in February when Tyson attended an event for Holyfield's barbecue sauce line.
