Photos: Mike Tyson Hits George Willis' 'Bite Fight' Launch

NEW YORK, NY - Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson and author George Willis attend the book launch event for Willis' 'The Bite Fight' at Bounce Sporting Club on July 17, 2013 in New York City. Willis' book goes into deep detail on infamous rematch between Tyson and Evander Holyfield on June 28, 1997. Willis gives an insightful account of the anticipation, the gruesome fight itself, and the ongoing aftermath of that one night reveals just how much of an impact it really made. The rivals met for a rematch that would never be finished, as Tyson earned a disqualification and infamy that followed in the third round by biting off a portion of Holyfield’s ear. Through nearly 100 interviews, including with the famed fighters themselves, and extensive research of past interviews, books, and transcripts, this exploration of the sensational events surrounding the fight provides a behind-the-scenes, past and present look at the bout.
