Mike Tyson Announces Ear-Shaped Cannabis Gummies ‘Mike Bites’

Weed Gummies ‘Mike Bites’

*Mike Tyson took a memorable bite off Evander Holyfield’s ear during a 1997 heavyweight match, and now the boxing legend has announced ear-shaped cannabis gummies called “Mike Bites.”

The marijuana edibles are the latest product from Tyson’s cannabis company, and the gummies will be sold at dispensaries in Massachusetts, California, and Nevada, Complex reports. 

In a 2019 episode of his Hotboxin’ With Mike Tyson podcast, Tyson and Holyfield discussed the idea of ear bite cannabis gummies while recounting their infamous moment in the ring. 

“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.
