Mike Tyson said he needed to fight again and called Lennox Lewis for a rematch after Evander Holyfield’s ‘F***ed up the money’.
The heavyweight giant came out of retirement last November to make a spectacular comeback.
He faced 52-year-old Roy Jones Jr. in an eight-round exhibition, which ended in a draw, and vowed to continue the fight.
His return to the ring also prompted Holyfield, 58, to start training again, leading to his disastrous fight with 44-year-old ex-UFC champion Vitor Belfort.
Belfort beat the veteran former champion around the ring before the referee rightfully stopped the skit.
Tyson, 55, is furious at believing a fascinating but necessary trilogy, Holyfield is dead in the water, leaving 56-year-old Lewis his new target.
They told ESNews: “I want one fight. I want one more fight.
“We were supposed to go with Evander Holyfield, but Evander raised the money, so we have to do it with Lennox now.”

In 1996 Tyson was defeated by Holyfield in Round 11 and was disqualified a year later for biting off his opponent’s ear in their rematch.
But they were recently in talks for a trilogy match after 24 years from the infamous ‘Bite Fight’ until they failed to agree on terms.
Lewis knocked out Tyson in 2002, and according to former mobster-turned-motivational speaker Michael Franzes, there is now a rematch.
Franzis, who had Iron Mike as a guest Youtube channel, said: “He is going to fight again in December.
“Lennox Lewis, and I can tell you he’s in pretty good shape.”
