Holyfield Defeated Tyson, Ear Bitten

Atlanta boxer Evander Holyfield retained his heavyweight championship in his rematch with former champion Mike Tyson. In the strangest of matches, Tyson was disqualified at the end of the third round for biting Holyfield’s ear again after having been warned earlier. This time, Tyson bit off part of Holyfield’s ear.
