Mike Tyson Launches Bitten Ear-Shaped Weed Gummies Inspired By Evander Holyfield Fight

Some celebrities can find a way to monetize anything. For Mike Tyson, it seems he’s capitalizing on his fight with Evander Holyfield.

Per reports, Mike Tyson, 55, is releasing cannabis edibles in the shape of an ear with bites in them, dubbed “Mike Bites.”

“Holy ears! They’re finally here! Go get your Mike Bites now,” read a tweet announcing the gummies.

They seem to be inspired by his 1997 match against Evander Holyfield, during which Mike Tyson bit off part of Evander Holyfield‘s ear. The attack resulted in Tyson being disqualified from the fight and continues to live on in infamy decades later. However, Holyfield has since forgiven him.

The edibles come from his cannabis line Tyson 2.0 and are sold in a few states, including California, Colorado, and Nevada. Tyson reportedly launched the company in late 2021 with the goal of providing emotional and physical relief to users. He writes on his website:

“Cannabis has always played an important role in my life. Cannabis has changed me for the good both mentally and physically, and I want to share that gift with others who are also seeking relief.”

“It’s really all about the love of the medicine,” he noted in an interview. “I put a great deal of time in agriculture and discovering the right strain.”

“It’s become pretty complex, but the best time of my life.”

He added that he likes his products so much, he uses them for himself.

“If I don’t use it for a week or three days, something of that capacity, I’m totally a different person. And I’m not a likable person,” he continued.

But ear-shaped edibles, though? What do you think about that? Let us know in the comments!
