Evander Holyfield and Mike Tyson are set to go head-to-head for a third and final time inside the ring later this year – but how do their current net worth figures look?

The Real Deal and Iron Mike both earned hundreds of millions during the heyday of their boxing careers in the 1980s and 90s, but fell on hard times ahead of recent recoveries.

While Holyfield was forced to sell his 109-room mansion to rapper Rick Ross after losing millions, Tyson sold his 52-room mansion to 50 Cent after being declared bankrupt back in 2003.

Daily Star Sport have now taken a look at how the heavyweight rivals now compare – with Holyfield keen to take on Tyson for a third and final time later in the year.

Evander Holyfield

Having earned upwards of £200million during the prime of his career, a string of business investments saw the four-time world heavyweight champion fall on hard times.

While the demise of Real Deal Records cost him in the region of £2.3m, the Sun report that a botched restaurant outing cost him another £7.6m.

Back in 2008 he was evicted from his 109-room Atlanta mansion while owing over £10m in mortgage payments, with Rick Ross on hand to snap it up for £4.2m.

Child support for 11 children from six different women has also not been cheap, with his third divorce coming back in 2012 from Candi Calvana Smith.

He admitted: "It is hard to fall down, and I kind of feel like everything is too late. When you don't have others looking out for you, everybody's taking something for themselves.

"Man, they were stealing, just stealing, stealing. [I want to] pass this onto my kids, where they won't have to worry about the same thing. I used to be foolish, but I ain't foolish no more."

Holyfield is now said to earn £75,000-a-month in appearance fees, and according to CelebrityNetWorth – he is now worth $1million or just under £750,000.

    Similarly to Holyfield, Tyson has seen the riches of boxing before falling on hard times.

    Iron Mike, who was the undisputed world heavyweight champion between 1987 and 1990, recently returned to the ring against Roy Jones Jr before announcing his intention to box again.

    The 54-year-old showed glimpses of his former self, a former self that earned just under £400m in purses and endorsements before calling time on his professional career in 2005.

    During that time Tyson liked to travel in style, with reports of a multi-million pound car collection that included a Lamborghini LM002 as well as a Cadillac Escalade and Hummer H2.

    As well as watches and jewellery worth millions, he had a giant estate in Connecticut that he bought for £2.3m, which included 24 bathrooms and a swimming pool.

    Tyson also had a mansion in Nevada, costing £1.9m, as well as a pad in Los Angeles.

    Having been left bankrupt in 2003, he sold his prized mansion to 50 Cent for £3.3m with debts rising to an estimated £17m before his recent financial recovery.

    In an episode of his podcast, Hotboxin’ With Mike Tyson, he said: “I had everything and then I was $60 million in debt. For some reason, they thought I was trying to make a deal to get out of this bankruptcy.

    “They thought I was going to fight it, but I had no intention of fighting it.”

    CelebrityNetWorth report his net worth to stand at $10million or just over £7m.
