Evander Holyfield, 57-years-old, is still hoping to be the guy to fight fellow former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson, in a trilogy fight.
Holyfield fought way beyond his prime years and had his last bout in 2011.
Tyson on the other hand, 53-years-old, retired back in 2005 after getting stopped by journeyman Kevin McBride.
Holyfield stopped Tyson in the eleventh round in 1996, in what was a huge upset at the time.
The 1997 rematch, far more famous than the first, saw Tyson get disqualified in three rounds for biting off a piece of Holyfield's ear.
Tyson wants to return to the ring, to compete in a few exhibition fights to raise money for charity.
The former undisputed heavyweight king, claims a deal is close to finalize the return.
While he wants the fight, Holyfield will not press Tyson to become the opponent of choice.
He wants a friendly exhibition, but cautions that he's ready to unload with big punches if Tyson decides to let his hands go.
"If I ask him it's almost like me being a bully saying I want to go against somebody I've beaten twice," Holyfield told BBC Sport.
"I don't want pressure on me that 'you just want to fight Mike because you know you can beat him'. If he hits me I'm gonna hit you back, that's what boxing is really about. I'm gonna be 58, he'll be 54, you talk about being in good health and doing things the proper way that respects it.
"Anybody that I get in the ring with, if I'm in there with my brother, if he tag me I'm gonna tag him back. If you don't want me to throw bombs you'd better not throw no bombs."
Holyfield hopes that he can inspire the younger generation.
"When they see me box at 58 years old, they're gonna go 'wow, how did you do that?' Taking care of yourself, listen to your momma, listen to your father," Holyfield said.
"When you become an adult you don't just say all that stuff my parents told me don't work. The reason you made it this far is because of these things your parents told you. I had good parents and a good coach.
"My coach told me at the age of eight years old 'you're gonna be the best fighter that ever came out of the south' and people laughed at him, but I was set when I made the Olympic team, then I became the undisputed cruiserweight champion, became the heavyweight champion of the world then got it again and again and again - he was right."
