The word on the street -- actually, on social media -- is that Mike Tyson may get in the ring with Evander Holyfield for a third time. Right now, Holyfield's ears are safe but there's money to be made and if there was ever a pair of heavyweights who needed a lucrative second career it's the two former champions.

First, the use of the term "windmill" is simply an obfuscation. The word conjures up benign images of Holland and farms.
