While interacting on ‘The 3-point Conversion’, Evander Holyfield revealed that he has no problem if the trilogy bout comes to fruition in the near future. "Well, the thing is, he was doing something and I was doing something. When I told people about it, they saw me working out and they kind of put two and two together. They must be coming together to do this like this. Well the point of the comeback - somebody just made up the names themselves - I'd been telling people that I wanted to start doing exhibitions.” said Evander Holyfield.

‘The Real Deal’ further claimed that he wants to return in order to make the younger generation aware that they need to take care of their physical well-being. According to Evander Holyfield, if one avoids bad habits and learns how to take care of their body at a young age, they will never have to suffer. Evander Holyfield is 57 years old now and has already started to train for his in-ring comeback.
