Mike Tyson hugs Evander Holyfield, 15 years after Biting his Ear during infamous fight

From the warm hug, they appear like old friends.

But it was a different story in June 1997 when Mike Tyson bit off part of Evander Holyfield"s ear during a fight.

The infamous confrontation appeared to be ancient history as the former boxers greeted each other at a promotional event for Holyfield’s Real Deal barbeque sauce at Chicago grocery store Jewel-Osco.

Almost 16 years on the pair seem to have no hard feelings but 50-year-old Holyfield was probably a little apprehensive about 46-year-old Tyson’s mouth going anywhere his head.

Tyson kept his teeth where they should be as he smiled while making contact with Holyfield at the photo call.

Putting his face out there as support for the brand, it was probably the best way Tyson could say sorry for the outlandish and aggressive attack at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas all those years ago.
