Hall of Famer Evander Holyfield is now gunning for a trilogy fight with fellow former undisputed heavyweight champion, Mike Tyson.
Last month at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, the 54-year-old Tyson came out of retirement to take part in an eight round exhibition clash with 51-year-old former four division world champion Roy Jones Jr.
Tyson retired from the sport back in 2005, after suffering a stoppage loss at the hands of journeyman Kevin McBride.
The event with Jones, which was distributed on pay-per-view, was a surprise smash hit.
The executives behind the Triller app, which financially backed the event, are expecting 1.6 million pay-per-view purchases.
According to Tyson, he initially tried to get Holyfield for the date - but claims his handlers were problematic during negotiations.
In the aftermath of last month's show, Tyson made it clear that he planned to move forward with more exhibition fights.
Holyfield, 58-years-old and inactive since 2011, issued a press release last week - demanding that a trilogy with Tyson take place.
“We’ve definitely had conversations with them. It looks like it’s going to happen,” Holyfield said to TMZ. “Let’s do it, baby. Simple as that. Let’s do it.”
Holyfield, coming in as a huge underdog at the time, shocked the world when he stopped Tyson in 1996 to capture the heavyweight crowd. Their infamous rematch, in 1997, ended in three rounds after Tyson was disqualified for biting off a piece of Holyfield's ear.
Holyfield believes the general public is pushing for the trilogy and he wants to deliver.
“That’s the only guy that I see that the people want. If you’re doing the thing, you’re doing it for the people. The purpose is the people because it’s the people that make things go around. As for just being him, if it wasn’t for the people who want it, I wouldn’t have said nothing to him,” Holyfield said.
“I’m a very confident person. I think it’s going to happen."
