Mike Tyson was in Chicago the other day when he learned that his former rival Evander Holyfield was also in town on business, being scheduled to appear at a promo event – so he thought he’d just drop by.
Fans will remember the June 1997 match when an incredibly volatile Tyson bit (and spit out) a chunk of Holyfield’s ear – if you don’t, check out the video above at around the 20-minute mark.
All that is water under the bridge now, Tyson told reporters. The Daily Mail has photos of the two champs’ reunion to promote Real Deal barbeque sauce at the Chicago grocery store Jewel-Osco.
“I just wanted to see Evander, man. I love Evander. I'm forever linked with him for the rest of my life,” Tyson said.
So, he showed up to help Holyfield promote the sauce and gave out hugs like they were candy, which is kind of sweet of him, you have to admit.
