Mike Tyson to be presenter at Evander Holyfield HOF induction
Apparently Holyfield has moved beyond the whole ear biting incident.
Evander Holyfield will be inducted into the Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame next month. His presenter? Mike Tyson, of course.
Tyson, you'll recall, tried to chew off Holyfield's ear in a 1997 bout.
According to ESPN, Tyson will serve as Holyfield's presenter at the event August 9 in Las Vegas. Tyson said his role in inducting Holyfield is a "privilege and honor." Holyfield said it will be "great."
The two have since put the incident in '97 behind them. They even appeared in a commercial together last year.
"This is the kind of thing we showed is possible in boxing last year at our inaugural induction ceremony -- former and even current rivals coming together under the same roof to celebrate boxing," Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame president Rich Marotta said. "Everyone checks those rivalries at the door. Tyson presenting Holyfield is sheer magic."
