George Foreman's attempt worked out very well.

Holyfield inspires me. People told him, "Evander, you can't box anymore. You only have one ear." And you know what he said? "I can't hear you."

Feed your boxers after weigh in, because they could use a nibble.

He just wanted to connect with other fighters,
but he bit off more than he could chew...

bostonguy: George Foreman's attempt worked out very well.


I have a George Foreman grill. Good (not great) for cooking if you can't have a proper grill. Of course, now that I have a proper grill, it's collecting dust and I'll probably give it away.

I had one for a while, and just like the ads said, it was incredibly easy to clean... until it wasn't. Some of the coating wore off, I guess. And, as if overnight, it went from being convenient to being the most annoying appliance I owned.

Evander Holyfield----  clean living, religious former champion.

Fark you History channel. That POS vile human has 11 children by 6 different women, pissed away more than $500 million in career earnings leaving hundreds of creditors over the year unpaid and married and divorced at least 3 women. He's zero degrees better than Tyson.

It's a perfect lazy person grill because of the generally low maintenance and ease of cooking, but it is far from a masterpiece of modern engineering.  Mine has held up well, but I also wouldn't cook anything serious on it - I basically use it when I can't be arsed to do some more serious grilling.

Also, the earbite was 25 years ago, as if I needed another thing to make me feel old.

A good friend of mine was a big Tyson fan. He was pissed when Holyfield beat him the first time and he was convinced Tyson was going to easily win this rematch. To this day, he still swears Holyfield goaded Tyson into biting him with a couple of head butts. Of course, he's equally sure Tyson was just about to knock Holyfield if that whole chomp chomp thing didn't happen.

The Tyson Grill would look like the culinary equivalent of this:

IIRC Tyson bit him twice in that fight.  The first bite got him a warning from the ref.  The second was when he went full cannibal.

Just watched his last fight and he was chewing on his left glove, which he had done as an amateur.   It was sad watching him sit in the corner and call it quits against some big slob who wouldn't last 45 seconds against him 20 years earlier.

My roommate and I were watching this fight on PPV when it aired. Of course, there's the superlong break after the round when Tyson bit him. Tired of waiting and having to dispense of several beers in the system, I headed to the bath room, left the door open to hear my roommate holler when the fight was resuming.

"Yo Kid, hurry up! You're gonna miss it!"

"What's going down?"

"Tyson is about to come out for the next round. And he's got salt and pepper!"

I did a PPV of the fight and had a party. This was in England, so the fight didn't happen until the wee hours of the morning. Almost everyone had left or passed out. I haven't done a PPV since.

Why they would continue the fight after the first bite is beyond me.  It should have ended at that moment.  I mean, how could you justify biting someone's ear like that?  I could understand a head butte or a below the belt shot but, that's just ridiculous.

Mike Tyson was convicted of raping a woman and it's all good because he did a few years at a minimum-security kids jail and then won some titles.  Women don't matter, ever, so celebrate this freaking monster.
