Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield are joining forces ahead of this holiday season for a special line of cannabis edibles referencing the infamous 1997 heavyweight boxing bout when Iron Mike was disqualified for biting off a chunk of Holyfield’s ear. The ear-shaped, THC-infused “Holy Ears” snacks are released via the Tyson 2.0 Global company, in which Holyfield is set to launch his own line in 2023.
“Mike and I have a long history of competition and respect for one another. And that night changed both of our lives. Back then, we didn’t realize that even as power athletes, we were also in a lot of pain. Now, nearly 20 years later, we have the opportunity to share the medicine we really needed throughout our careers,” Holyfield said in his own statement.
According to Huffpost editor Philip Lewis, Tyson echoed the sentiments saying, “If I was on cannabis, I wouldn’t have bit his ear.” Holy Ears gummies are said to be 25mg per piece and arrive in three flavors including “Cherry Pie Punch,” “Sour Apple Punch,” and “Black Eye Berry.” The snacks are also all-natural, vegan, and gluten-free.
Priced at $30 USD per bag, the Delta 8 Holy Ears snacks are now available at the Tyson 2.0 Global website. Take a look at the trailer below.
