Here is video of contestants entering the ring in 1949 to have a go at blindfold boxing. It’s pretty fun to watch, kinda like watching drunk people fight.
Remember when Tyson bit off Holyfield’s ear?

On this day back in 1997, Mike Tyson bit a chunk off of Evander Holyfield’s ear during a boxing match. I remember watching this match on pay-per-view at a friends house. We were stoked for this match-up. Everyone was. The incident led to Tyson being disqualified. He was a punk for doing what he did, but I’d never say that to his face. The entire fight is on YouTube now if you want to watch it. Watching these two stare at each other before the match (about 4:30) is terrifying.

I didn’t know this until today, but the two boxers had a face-to-face meeting in 2009 on a live episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” They hugged it out.

So, how much would would someone have to pay you to step into the ring and fight Mike Tyson in his prime? This was a popular question raised among friends back in the day and my answer stands. I would do it for $2 million dollars and go down on a jab.

I was mesmerized by Angry Birds when it came out. I logged countless hours playing that game on my phone (much to my wife’s chagrin). Now I am cured. I recently deleted the app from my phone after completing multiple levels. I did it cold turkey. I am glad I did it my way.
For those that need a little extra help quitting Angry Birds, Mike Tyson has a new program that will help. Trust me.
