Mike Tyson is selling ear-shaped edibles with a chunk missing in reference to his infamous 1997 fight where he bit an opponent’s ear.

Called Mike Bites, the cannabis-infused treats were revealed via social media with a caption that read, “Mike Bites have landed in California”.

Speaking about the product on Twitter, Tyson said, “These ears actually taste good!”

The boxing icon added, “Being tough doesn’t work in the real world, outside of boxing. You gotta be smart.”

The product is a nod to Tyson’s 1997 boxing match against Evander Holyfield where he was disqualified for biting a chunk out of Holyfield’s ear.

One of the most memorable and controversial moments in the sport’s history, the two have since put the incident behind them.

Holyfield said in 2019 on the incident with Tyson, “People keep asking, ‘How are you gonna forgive… I say, everything that ever happened, at some point in time, I did it. Mike bit me, I say I bit somebody too – it just wasn’t on TV.

“I bit a guy in his shoulder, he dropped me, and I didn’t know when you had a concussion, you’ll bite too.”

In other boxing news, Britain’s heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury recently claimed that he is retiring from boxing after his upcoming fight with Dillian Whyte.
