Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield, boxing greats and huge rivals for a while, have collaborated together to launch marijuana gummies which are ear-shaped and named Holy Ears.
Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield were the greatest heavyweight boxers in the world during the mid to late 90s. Their historic meeting in 1997 ended with Miek Tyson, who was on the losing end of the fight, biting a chunk out of Holyfield’s ear in desperation. The incident left “Iron” Mike $3 million light and cost him his license.
Twenty five years after the incident, Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield announced their collaboration in launching a collection of cannabis gummies named “Holy Ears”.
The company behind the product is Tyson 2.0 (owned by Mike Tyson) and the edibles, which are oddly ear-shaped, and are infused with THC and Delta-8 THC. The shape of the edibles actually represents an ear with a chunk missing, just like Holyfield’s.
“From Mike Bites to Holy Ears, now cannabis fans around the world can experience the same wellness benefits that plant-based products have brought me,’ said Mike Tyson about the latest product launch.
“It’s a privilege to reunite with my former opponent and now long-time friend, and turn years of fights and knockouts into a partnership that can make a positive impact and heal people.”
Evander Holyfield was honored to accept Tyson’s invitation to participate in the project, confessing that tasting one of the first Holy Ears samples was the first time he ever tried cannabis:
“I wanted to make sure I got home and didn’t do anything to anyone,” Holyfield told the Huffington Post. “I ate it and laid down. I woke up the next morning and was like, whoa.”
Mike Tyson started his cannabis company in November of last year (2021) and is a big proponent of the plant:
“Cannabis has changed me for the good both mentally and physically, and I want to share that gift with others who are also seeking relief.”
The Holy Ears are scheduled to launch on November 25 (Black Friday) in the USA.
