Nearly 25 years after being disqualified from the World Boxing Association heavyweight championship for biting off the ears of opponent Evander Holyfield, the boxing legend continues to make jaw-dropping headlines.

His newly launched cannabis company is launching ear-shaped weed gummies called “Mike Bites.” “Sacred ears! They are finally here! Go get your Mike Bites now,” his company, Tyson 2.0, said in a tweet tuesday, accompanied by a photo of the erasers.

The gummies will be sold at dispensaries in California, Massachusetts and Nevada.

The bite cost Tyson a disqualification from the 1997 World Boxing Association heavyweight championship. His boxing license was revoked and he was fined $3 million.

Luckily, all these years later, there’s no bad blood between Tyson and Holyfield, with the two even reconciling. In one episode 2019 of the “Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson” podcast, Holyfield said he had “forgiven” Tyson, and Tyson threw him a candy in the shape of an ear.

“You could be in business because we’re going to do holy ears,” Tyson said at the time. “Certain edible products [of the ear] who took a bite out of them.

Holyfield replied, “Well, I could do that.”
