Talk about strange bedfellows.
Once upon a time Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield were mortal enemies because Tyson bit a chunk of Holyfield’s ear off in fight in ‘Vegas back in 1997.
Well that was 15 years ago and not only has Holyfield forgiven Tyson, he is thrilled that Tyson will present him with his induction trophy on Aug. 9 when he enters the Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame.
“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. Everyone checks those rivalries at the door. Tyson presenting Holyfield is sheer magic,” Rich Marotta, the president of the Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame, said in a news release.
Tyson called the opportunity to present Holyfield a “privilege and high honor,” while Holyfield said “that’s great,” about Tyson’s participation.
