Apologetic` Tyson gives back `bitten ear` to Holyfield in `bizarre` TV ad
London – Former American boxing star Mike Tyson is reportedly seen handing back the piece of ear he bit off his compatriot Evander Holyfield during their infamous fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas over 15 years ago in a new TV advertisement.
The former world heavyweight champion was disqualified for biting his opponent twice in the high profile match back in 1997.
According to the Daily Express, an apologetic Tyson is seen handing the piece of ear to Holyfield, and saying that he had been keeping the ear safe in a solution of formaldehyde, following which a smiling Holyfield gives him a hug in the bizarre ad for sports brand Foot Locker.
The ad, which is to promote the brand’s ‘Week of Greatness’ – also features NBA star Dennis Rodman, who is seen purchasing a one-way ticket to North Korea, and former American quarterback Brett Favre, the report added.
