Former boxing heavyweight champion, Mike Tyson has just rekindled an old memory of his infamous bite on Evander Holyfield after releasing edibles shaped like Holyfield’s ears.
Tyson and Holyfield had battled for the WBA heavyweight title in a rematch on June 28, 1997, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, Paradise, Nevada, United State of America.
The fight ended in disqualification for Tyson as he bit a chunk out of Holyfield’s ear. The biting incident resulted in a riot between the opposing camps. Tyson was disgraced by the boxing public, fined $3million, and suspended for 15 months.
The boxer who is now a 55-year-old businessman and through his Tyson Holistic label has been selling cannabis products since 2016 recently launched ‘Mike Bites’ a cannabis edible.
Tyson revealed his product in a video on his official Instagram account with a message that said: “Holy ears! They’re finally here! Go get your Mike Bites now.” The new edible is shaped in an ear but missing a huge chunk referencing his fight with Holyfield.
Tyson has 20 acres for master growers of weed, taking advantage of the state’s legalization of recreational marijuana, and is believed to earn around £500,000-per-month.
