Content of the article

One of Mike Tyson’s infamous boxing moments is now immortalized in the form of jarred edibles.

The former heavyweight boxer’s cannabis company is capitalizing on the time Tyson bit off a piece of Evander Holyfield’s ear, producing a line of edibles called Mike Bites, which feature ear-shaped candies – with a bite mark.

According to BNC News, Tyson 2.0 launched Mike Bites about 25 years after the 1997 WBA Heavyweight Championship fight in which Tyson removed a piece of Holyfield’s right ear in the third round. He spat it on the ground.

The match was abandoned and Tyson was disqualified, losing the WBA title in the process. Tyson was later fined $3 million by the Nevada State Athletic Commission and his boxing license was suspended.

Tyson 2.0 announced Mike Bites on social media last week.

“Sacred ears! They are finally here! Go get your Mike Bites now,” the the company tweeted.

Edibles have also been endorsed by Tyson.

“These ears taste really good!” Tyson tweeted.

The gummy edibles will be available for sale at cannabis dispensaries in Nevada (site of the infamous boxing match), Massachusetts and California.

Since the title fight, both boxers have made amends, with Holyfield forgiving Tyson for the ear bite. During a podcast episode of ‘Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson’ in 2019, Tyson even pitched the idea of ​​an ear candy to Holyfield, BNC News reported.

“You could be in business because we’re going to be doing holy ears,” Tyson said. “Edible ears that pulled back a bit. Holy ears.

Tyson made a foray into the world of marijuana products after opening a 40-acre cannabis farm in California in 2018.

It’s unclear if Holyfield will get any of the edibles profits.
