Heavyweight legends Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield embraced at Jewel-Osco on Chicago's South Side. Holyfield was signing autographs and promoting his barbecue sauce at the location. Tyson, who was in town performing his one-man show, surprised Holyfield by making an unexpected appearance to give his support. Tyson told local reporters he "just wanted to see Evander." At one time they were the worst of enemies. Holyfield, a huge underdog, upset Tyson with an eleventh round TKO in 1996 - and then their 1997 rematch was forever cemented in history after Tyson was disqualified in the third round for biting both of Holyfield's ears.

Meanwhile here in the freezing backwater of the post-colonial UK.. ......our favourite national comic/newspaper 'The Sun' went bonkers for all the sauce/ear biting gags and we all suddenly realised how England somehow managed to give the world Benny Hill and Shakespeare. Tyson cuddling Eva...

[QUOTE]If this were 1987 Mike, and Rooney in his corner, he topples Holyfield inside of 5.[/QUOTE] Here we go, another one of these guys. Iron Mike of the 80's is unbeatable because of all the bums he disposed inside of 2 rounds. The truth is he always would've given up if things didn't go ...
