It’s been years since Mike Tyson took a bite out of opponent Evander Holyfield’s ear, but he remembers that it didn’t taste so good.
“It wasn’t too tasty,” Mike said of Evander’s ear, which he chomped on during the fighters’ infamous bout in 1997.
However, Mike wasn’t hating on his fellow fighter. He actually used the opportunity to plug Evander’s hot sauce, suggesting that the body part would have been more palatable with the condiment.
“I didn’t have any of that Holyfield hot sauce on it,” said Mike. “That would have been a delicacy.”
Mike might have been vicious in the ring, but the boxer had nothing negative to say about his fellow boxers or promoter Don King.
“I have the highest respect for all of them really,” he told “Watch What Happens Live” host Andy Cohen about his former competitors. “For anyone getting in the ring and the fear and all the obstacles you have to go through psychologically to do that…” he said.
As for famed promoter Don King, who Mike sued for $100 million in 1998, it seems the champ has moved past their problems enough to compliment Don.
“He’s always a good dresser. He had a great hairdo, and he’s very articulate,” said Mike.
