Mike Tyson Reveals Payment For Biting Holyfield

Mike Tyson is most definitely one of the most legendary professional boxers in the history of the sport, and he attended the US Open recently, with fans suggesting he looked high on mushrooms, as seen below. Triller’s latest event featured Evander Holyfield squaring off against Vitor Belfort and getting knocked out in over a minute within the first round. Due to the match’s reception, new regulations will be imposed and that includes banning exhibition matches. Due to this, Mike Tyson and Holyfield may be banned from Triller. Sylvester Stallone has now said Tyson Fury is the best heavyweight ever, not Mike Tyson, in a new interview with Fury.



Mike Tyson recently was involved in an incident, where he punched a passenger named Melvin Townsend, who was bloodied after Tyson hit him in the head many times. This was due to Mike Tyson harassing him and then some.

And though Tyson has always expressed regret for what took place, he recently admitted to ES News that, from a business perspective, biting Holyfield’s ear was “the best thing he ever did.”

“I’ll tell you something that’s really funny, and I don’t mean this in bad taste. But that’s the best thing I ever did, bite his ear.

Not that I wish I bit his ear, but from a business perspective. Yeah, it was.

I never even think about it. However, I think about how much money that I made from taking pictures of biting people that it supersedes the $3m that I lost.

I look at, after three or four years, and think ‘whoa, that’s how much I made?’ That’s what it makes it funny for me. Yes, I bit his ear but I made that back from taking pictures. So I can never beat myself up about it.”
