Tyson, Holyfield Collaborate On Ear-themed Cannabis Company

Foes looking to knock each other out will now be collaborating on a cannabis company.



Former heavyweight champion of the world, Mike Tyson, introduced to another former heavyweight champion, Evander Holyfield, Mike Bites, a line of pot gummies that are shaped like ears with a bite out of them. It’s a reference to when Tyson bit off Holyfield’s ear in the 1997 WBA Heavyweight Championship. But now Tyson’s company, Tyson 2.0, will introduce Holy Ears – a line of THC and Delta-8 THC-infused edibles.



The duo intends to release Holyfield’s own cannabis line in 2023.


In recent years, Tyson has become an evangelist for cannabis.


Tyson did smoke weed as a kid. But he stopped doing it after losing a spot on the 1984 Olympic boxing team.


“I’d get raving drunk, and people would say it was better than getting high,” Tyson said to the Huffpost.


Tyson said he came back to cannabis because he didn’t like the effect of other painkillers such as opiates.


“You can’t shit. You can’t do nothing,” Tyson said.


While Tyson bit off Holyfield’s ear in the 90s, Holyfield recollected the events and concluded that Tyson turned his life around, which led to Holyfield being in support of the ear-themed cannabis product.


“I didn’t think it was funny at first, but then I realized Mike hadn’t been in more trouble for a while,” Holyfield said.


And Holyfield said he didn’t even try cannabis until he got the first Holy Ears sample.


“I wanted to make sure I got home and didn’t do anything to anyone,” he said. “I ate it and laid down. I woke up the next morning and was like,” Whoa.’”
