Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield are teaming as business partners with “Holy Ears,” an edible cannabis product and take off their infamous moment where Tyson bit a chunk of Holyfield’s ear off during a 1987 heavyweight title fight.
According to Fox, “Holy Ears” is THC and Delta-8 THC-infused edibles shaped like bitten ears, which will launch in November through “TYSON 2.0,” the boxer’s cannabis company.
Tyson, per the report, said it was his wife, Kiki’s, idea to have “Holy Ears” as a product.
“I said, ‘That’s awesome.’ Then, we played with it, we released it, it was an immediate success,” Tyson, who initially dropped the product as “Mike Bites,” told Fox News Digital. “It was immediate success, and so I was saying, ‘Why don’t Evander get involved too?’”
Holyfield, on the other hand, to be convinced of the new venture.
“They said it’s about helping people,” Holyfield told Fox News Digital. “So, I said, ‘I ain’t got no problem helping people.’ I didn’t know if it was something that I had to act like I was smoking reefer. I realized it is for helping somebody else. So, the fact that [it was] something that helped somebody else, I was fine with that.”
