Holyfield’s rematch w/ Tyson took place in June 28, 1997. Better-known as “The Bite Fight,” it would go into the annals of boxing as 1 of the most bizarre fights in history. The infamous incident occurred in the 3rd round, when Tyson bit Holyfield on one of his ears & had two points deducted. Referee Mills Lane decided to disqualify Tyson initially, but after Holyfield and the ringside doctor intervened and said Holyfield could continue, he relented and allowed the fight to go on. However, Tyson went on to bite Holyfield again, this time on the other ear. Tyson, with his teeth, tore off the top of his ear, known as the helix, & spit the flesh out on the ring. After the Botha fight, Holyfield said he was interested in fighting either Vitali Klitschko, the current WBC Champion, or his younger brother Wladimir Klitschko. Also, Sam Sexton has been linked to a possible fight with Holyfield. In May 2010, Tomasz Adamek’s camp showed interest in a possible fight with Holyfield. Currently a match in November 2010 in Copenhagen, Denmark against Brian Nielsen who is coming out of an 8-year retirement seems almost certain.
