Evander Holyfield has uploaded yet another training compilation as he bids to return to the ring in a potential fight with Mike Tyson, this time showing himself sparring against Wladimir Klitschko.
The 57-year-old former heavyweight world champion has announced he is looking to take part in exhibition bouts for charity and is in talks to fight old rival Tyson, who is making his own comeback.
Holyfield looked in phenomenal shape as he shared footage of his training regime this week, with Klitschko popping up part way through the video holding a clipboard.
Quite how big a role the Ukrainian is playing in Holyfield’s comeback is still unknown, but in a new montage uploaded on Friday he was seen sparring against the veteran American.
Klitschko, who last fought against Anthony Joshua at Wembley Stadium in 2017, was in the United States for work when the coronavirus crisis hit and has been unable to return to Europe.
He has been living in south Florida for the past few months and seems to have ignored social distancing rules to link up with Holyfield at Miami gym Elev8tion Fitness.
“I’m feeling stronger and stronger as each day passes,” Holyfield wrote on Instagram alongside the latest video.
“I’m looking forward to stepping back into the ring this year.”
Klitschko responded with his own message accompanying a shot of the former champs clenching fists, saying: “You wanna know what’s the “Real Deal? Will power! Physical power and brain power are equal in importance. Age is just a number!”
In the video, D.r Steelhammer watched Holyfield skip while wearing a weighted vest and gives him some words of encouragement as he does lunges with an enormous chain hanging over his shoulders.
Klitschko also spars with Holyfield at the very end of the video, though there was a whole lot of distance between the punches being thrown adding further weight to suggestions that the training clips have been tweaked to flatter the veteran American.
