These marijuana candies, known as Mike Bites, recall Mike Tyson’s 1997 fight against Evander Holyfield, where the boxer bit off a chunk of the boxer’s ear.
A chunk of Evander Holyfield’s ear was famously torn out in the 1997 WBA Heavyweight Championship fight between boxing legend Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield. Mike Tyson now offers marijuana gummy candies that look like ears with bites out of them sold by his company, Tyson 2.0.
“Holy ears! They’re finally here! Go get your Mike Bites now,” the company said in a tweet.
Tyson says on the company website that cannabis has always been a very important part of his life. “Cannabis has changed me for the better both mentally and physically, and I want to share this gift with others.”
The company’s website says it sells its products at select marijuana retailers in California, Colorado, and Nevada.
Tyson bit Holyfield’s ear during the 1997 fight, and shortly after the fight was restarted, Tyson bit Holyfield’s other ear. Tyson was disqualified from the fight, and his boxing license was revoked. He was also fined over $3 million.
