Boxing Preparing to make comeback
Mike Tyson has admitted that he’d bite Evander Holyfield’s ear again if he had to. The former British heavyweight was disqualified for biting his opponent’s ear during the rematch for the WBA heavyweight title in 1997.
Tyson is preparing to make his boxing comeback at the end of November at the age of 54 against Roy Jones Jr.
“I say, ‘No, never ever again.’ But I might do it again. Well if he does what he was doing to get bitten, I would bite him again. Yeah,” Tyson told Fox News over the Holyfield incident.
“I bit him because I wanted to kill him. I was really mad about my head being bumped and everything. I really lost consciousness of the whole fight. It took me out of my fight plan and everything.
“Listen, good or bad, I’m not going to let anyone take my glory. So, I’m going to confront everything that I have to confront… Hey listen, I done it. I got to handle the responsibility of it. That was my glory. And I took responsibility for it.”
