The $100-million rematch between boxing Heavyweight champions Evander Holyfield and Mike Tyson was originally billed “The Sound and the Fury,” but will be more commonly known as the “Bite-travaganza” after Iron Mike took a literally chunk out of Holyfield’s ear. June 28, 1997 proved to be a dark day for the sport of boxing, marking the start of a sad decline of a true boxing legend. President Bill Clinton even chimed in on the event stating he was quoted that he was “Horrified”. This vintage promotional cap from the fight in question faired a lot better 14 years later. On a side note the same night, Tupac Shakur was mortal wounded in a shooting after the match on the Las Vegas strip. Dark days. Claim this piece of history from POLITICS.
