Mike Tyson’s cannabis company is launching ear-shaped weed gummies called “Mike Bites”, almost 25 years after the boxing legend famously bit Evander Holyfield’s ear during a 1997 heavyweight match, the company announced the news via Twitter on Tuesday.
According to the weed brand, the gummies will be sold at dispensaries in Massachusetts, California, and Nevada. Tyson even put his stamp of approval on the gummies, writing, “These ears actually taste good!”
The Mirror reported that, Tyson pitched the idea of the gummies to Holyfield back in 2019 on an episode of his Hotboxin’ With Mike Tyson podcast.
“People keep asking, ‘How are you gonna forgive something like that?’” Holyfield explained. “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.”
“You might be in business because we’re going to make some holy ears. Some edibles [of the ear] that got a bite taken out of ’em,” Tyson said.
