In perhaps the most bizarre moment in the history of boxing, Mike Tyson is disqualified after biting Evander Holyfield twice in the third round. The fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas was a rematch for the heavyweight title won by Holyfield in November. The fight was clearly going the same way, leading a frustrated Tyson to bite a chunk out of Holyfield’s ear.
