Boxing legend Mike Tyson and social media star Hasbulla Magomedov have sent Twitter into a frenzy after a video of them having fun in a podcast went viral.
Recently, the 20-year-old social media sensation appeared on Tyson’s popular Hotboxin podcast. The two hit it off as they got into a playful scuffle at times.
At one point, Hasbulla, who is 3ft 4in, had his ear fake-bitten by the former undisputed heavyweight champion.
Did Mike Tyson just fake Bite Hasbullah’s ear off lmao

The boxing icon’s move was quickly related to his infamous incident with Evander Holyfield, where he bit a chunk out of the latter’s ear when they fought in the WBA heavyweight title rematch in 1997.
Social media users recalled Tyson’s prime years, when ‘Iron’ pretended to gnaw at Hasbulla’s ear.
Hasbulla has taken the internet by storm. Recently, the Russian also signed a UFC deal. However, neither the man himself nor Dana White has revealed if there are plans to have Hasbullah appear in an actual fight.
He is also close friends with UFC veterans Khabib Nurmagomedov and Islam Makhachev.
