Tyson, who admitted to issuing an insincere apology after the controversial match, told Winfrey he would like the opportunity to say sorry again. Now he may be getting his chance.

“When I see him sometimes, he’s a little leery of me,” Mike said on Monday. “I can feel the vibe and energy is not good, but I always wanted to shake his hand and apologize. I’ve known him for such a long time, and it was undisciplined. I was in a very competitive mood, and I wanted desperately to beat him for my own self-aggrandizement.”

Holyfield’s upcoming appearance with Tyson will be the first time the two have squared off in over a decade.
