When asked by famous sportscaster Jim Gray during a show aired last weekend if he would do it again, Tyson said “I hope not.”
“I say, ‘No, never again.’ But I could do it again. Well, if he did what he was doing to get bitten, I would bite him again,” said the former champion.
Next, Gray asked Tyson about the second bite, to which Tyson replied that “I bit [Holyfield] because I wanted to kill him.”
“I was really mad because my head got hit and all that. In fact, I lost consciousness from the whole match. It took me out of my match plan,” he recalled.
In the third round of the June 28, 1997 fight, Tyson bit off a part of Holyfield’s right ear. The fight was suspended for a few minutes, and then resumed. However, moments later Tyson bit his left ear and this time he was disqualified.
