Holyfield on a Tyson/Holyfield 3 fight
“I think it would be a lot of money, a lot of millions, I think 100 milllion. The fight would be big because so many people want the fight.”
Holyfield on Tyson biting his ear
“In the ring I was getting ready to bite him back, I was going to bite him back in the face, on the cheek, but my trainer was saying keep your mind on the Lord because the prophet told us something was going to happen in there. I thought I was going to get hit with an elbow or a head butt, but never thought about the ear.”
Holyfield on forgiving Mike Tyson
“Once I got into the lockeroom and some of the people started getting loud saying, “I can’t believe he did this!” I said we got to forgive him, and they said, “what you mean you got to forgive him?” I said did he bite you or did he bite me? I said we’re going to forgive him because when I prayed that’s what God said, you have to forgive.”
