Mike Tyson’s Cannabis Company Is Releasing Ear-Shaped Weed Gummies
Nearly 25 years after Mike Tyson famously bit Evander Holyfield's ear during a heavyweight match, the boxing legend's cannabis company is releasing weed gummies shaped like ears called "Mike Bites."
Tyson's weed brand announced the news on Twitter on Tuesday, saying the gummies would be sold at dispensaries in Massachusetts, California, and Nevada. Tyson even put his stamp of approval on the gummies, writing, “These ears actually taste good!”
According to The Mirror, Tyson pitched the idea of the gummies to Holyfield on an episode of his podcast Hotboxin' With Mike Tyson in 2019.
“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.
