It’s been almost exactly fifteen years since the infamous rematch between Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield. The bout has become known for the crazy moment when Tyson bit off a chunk of Holyfield’s ear. It’s a moment Tyson has been asked about consistently since then, and his appearance on “Watch What Happens: Live” (Sun.-Thu., 11 p.m. ET on Bravo) proved no different.
During host Andy Cohen’s “Plead the Fifth” segment, he was asked point-blank what human ear tasted like. Tyson is so used to the topic coming up by this point that he barely reacted at all. Instead, he quipped,”Depends on which ear that you bite.”
Tyson ultimately admitted that it doesn’t taste too good, leading Cohen to crack a joke that it might have needed Holyfield’s Hot Sauce.
“That would’ve been a delicacy,” Tyson agreed.
Holyfield had cracked the joke about his new product on the anniversary of the infamous bout, Tweeting that his hot sauce “will make u wanna take a bite out of someone’s ear! Ask @MikeTyson – Luv ya bro!”
Apparently when the checks stop coming in, it’s the laughs that bring in the money.
