Before Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder slugged it out in front of the world, three legendary heavyweights were bestowed with honors for their contribution to the sport of boxing. Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, and Lennox Lewis were called to the ring Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena and given medals by the WBC as tribute to some of their infamous bouts in Las Vegas.

The three iconic boxers share a ton of respect for each other, and fans went wild seeing all of them in the ring. Being involved in some of history’s biggest fights has formed unbreakable bonds between the fighters, which was recently showcased when Holyfield sat down for an episode of “Hotboxin’ With Mike Tyson” and got real about his start in boxing … and even the infamous bite heard round the world.
