Tyson: Suarez and Ivanovic can put differences aside

Mike Tyson believes Liverpool striker Luis Suarez will make up with Branislav Ivanovic - just as the former world boxing champion did with Evander Holyfield.

Suarez is facing an extended ban from the Football Association for biting Chelsea defender Ivanovic on the arm in Sunday's 2-2 draw at Anfield.

Tyson was involved in similar controversy when he bit off a chunk of Evander Holyfield's ear in the WBA heavyweight title fight between the two in 1997.

The Americans have since settled their differences and Tyson is confident Suarez and Ivanovic will do the same.

He told the David Glenn radio show in America: "He (Suarez) bit someone, it happens. I am sure he will make amends with this guy.

"I made amends with Evander and we got on with our lives."

Tyson started to follow Suarez on Twitter when he heard of the weekend incident.

He added: "I saw this guy (Suarez) on the Twitter thing and thought I would check it out and see what his journey was all about."

Suarez, who has been fined by Liverpool, called Ivanovic late on Sunday to apologise for his actions.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
