Mike Tyson‘s weed company has started to produce cannabis edibles shaped like Evander Holyfield’s ear – with a chunk missing from it of course.

The boxing legend, 55, moved into the marijuana trade by opening his own ranch in California back in 2020.

Since then, Iron Mike’s business empire has grown exponentially, with plans to eventually turn the ranch into a weed-themed holiday resort he hopes will one day be home to a music festival to rival Coachella.

Of course, there’s still a long way to go until then, but now the 55-year-old ring legend has brought out ‘Mike Bites’ which you no doubt will have seen by now.

If you haven’t already heard the news, Tyson has launched a new range of edibles that look like an ear.

Yep, you did read that right.

The cannabis-infused gummies are about the same size as a Haribo ring and clearly resemble a lughole – without the tip.

They are of course a reference to one of the most shocking moments in boxing history.

Originally billed as ‘The Sound and the Fury’, Tyson famously bit a chunk off of Holyfield’s ear in their 1997 rematch before being disqualified.

From then on, it was thereafter more commonly referred to as ‘The Bite Fight’ for obvious reasons.

YouTube star Greg Baroth shared a photo of the food product to his 15,000 social media followers on Twitter on Monday night.

He captioned the post: “Mike Tyson’s weed company is making edibles in the shape of an ear. Genius.”

His tweet has currently got more than 5,000 comments, 17,000 retweets and 125,000 likes at the time of writing.

Tyson has also spoken before on several occasions about what exactly was going through his head in that moment of madness when he took a bite out of Holyfield’s ear.

During a previous episode of the Hotboxin‘ podcast, he said: “This is the real deal.

“Last thing I remember I said ‘this m———– is going to die’ – and it was on.

“I would have bit his nose, his lips, anything. I would have bit anything. I would have bit his balls, his d—, I would have ripped his f—— d— off.

“He did right. He was headbutting the s— out of me, right? But that was cool too but this n—– was just ringing my f—— bell too.”
