Cousins! Boxing legends Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield are taking the old saying , “ when life gives you lemons make lemonade” to new heights as they’ve partnered up to turn a historic infamous moment into a full pledged cannabis company!
Tyson and Holyfield are setting out to release a line of cannabis infused edibles called “Holy Ears”. The product is described as being “all-natural, vegan and gluten-free; and will be offered in THC, Delta 8 and other hemp-cannabinoid varieties, “ reports the BoxingScene.
According to NBC news the collaboration was announced on Monday November 14th, just 25 years after the pairs most legendary match.
“Holy Ears “derives from an unforgettable incident in the 1997 shared between the two men during a match where Tyson bit Holyfield’s ear, taking off a chunk and literally spitting it out. The incident weighs in as one of the craziest moments in sports history.
In 2020 Tyson revealed that he had lost conscious during the match and bit him because he wanted to, “kill him”. Thankfully Holyfield doesn’t hold the ordeal against him as the two have definitely moved.
“Mike and I have a long history of competition and respect for one another. And that night changed both of our lives. Back then, we didn’t realize that even as power athletes, we were also in a lot of pain,” said Holyfield said in a forwarded statement. “Now, nearly 20 years later, we have the opportunity to share the medicine we really needed throughout our careers.”
The signature product will be sold through the cannabis company of Carma Holdings. Tyson has also collaborated through the company for his very own cannabis line of ‘Tyson 2.0’
Reports read that Tyson 2.0 has already began to sell cannabis infused products named Mike Bites. The edibles are shaped like ears with a bite mark on them.
“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 Tyson. He continued in saying it is a “privilege to reunite”
Carma will be releasing Holyfield’s own cannabis line some time next year .
