Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield Promote Ear-Shaped Marijuana ‘Holy Bites’
Despite being enemies in the ring, they've come together for business.
Mike ‘The Iron’ Tyson and Evander Holyfield might be bitter rivals in the ring, but they are getting along nicely as the duo gather to launch a new Marijuana product.
‘Iron Mike’ and ‘The Real Deal’ have shared one of the most iconic moments in the history of the sport. The pair met twice during the 1990s and each time, it had controversy written all over it.
They face each other for the first time in 1996, which led to a shocking 11th-round knockout of Tyson, the fight in which Tyson had the upper hand throughout the proceeding. Looking at the enormity of the occasion, the duo decided to run it back for one more time in the following June.
And it was the second outing which made this rivalry even more memorable and gigantic. Tyson was on a mission to avenge the loss while ‘The Real Deal’ improvised dirty tactics to keep ‘The Iron’ frustrated.
A series of headbutts led Tyson to create the shocking moment in the third round. He bit a chunk out of Holyfield’s ear which led to the disqualification of Tyson. An after-fight brawl further glorified the occasion.
Years later, the pair have apparently moved on and have started a joint venture. In the last few years, Tyson has been actively involved in the Marijuana Business and has released a product of his own named, ‘Mike Bites’.
And it seems like the overwhelming response from the community has led him to launch another sequelae product, but now in collaboration with his former foe, Holyfield.
‘Holy Bites’ will be ear-shaped gummies that feature THC and Delta-8. Holyfield appeared in an advertisement for the new product and announced that he would be launching a new line of cannabis alongside Tyson next year.
