Tyson 2.0, Tyson’s cannabis brand, announced new merchandise they believe will sell. After biting Evander Holyfield’s, Tyson was banished from the “World Boxing Association Heavyweight Championship” 25 years ago.
The “ear-shaped” edibles “Mike Bites” have a missing piece on the top of the ear. The shape of the edibles was inspired by “the big fight” between Tyson and Holyfield.
On Tuesday, the company announced the new merchandise on a Twitter post. They included a picture of the edibles, which they believe will catch people’s attention. “Holy ears! They’re finally here! Go get your Mike Bites now”. Said the Twitter post.
Fascinated individuals responded to the tweet. “I hope @holyfield is getting a cut.” “Can I get a few packs shipped?”. Some showed interest in the gummies and couldn’t wait to get high on them.
They also added that Tyson approved the new product in their response about “Mike Bites.” Tyson said, “these ears taste good!” in a Twitter post. The edibles will sell at dispensaries in Nevada, Massachusetts, and California.
Boxing officials paused the match between Tyson and Holyfield after the former bit one of Holyfield’s ear. However, after the game resumed, Tyson bit the other ear, which led to his disqualification and boxing license being revoked by the boxing association. The board fined him $3 million.
The two Boxing champions appear to have reconciled after Holyfield claimed he forgave him and Tyson gave him an era-shaped candy in a “2019 episode of the hotboxing with mike Tyson”.
Eben Britton, former co-host, made the ear-shaped candy Tyson gave to Holyfield. “Well, I could do that,” he replied.
“You might be in business because we’re going to make some holy ears,” Tyson responded. “Edible ears that got a bit taken out of them. Holy ears.” It is not clear if the company will share profits with Holyfield.
