At one point in their boxing careers, Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield were the bitterest of rivals.

The two heavyweight sluggers shared the ring twice back in the late 90's, with the second of the two meetings resulting what could the craziest and most controversial moment not just in the boxing world, but the whole sports world in general.

In 1997, Tyson and Holyfield met in a rematch for the WBA heavyweight championship.

Tyson, who was dealing with some issues in and out of the ring, was disqualified after biting off a huge chunk of Holyfield's right ear.

As insane as the moment was, the two have since mended fences and have had their fair share of fun looking back on what was an otherwise unfortunate incident.

25 years later, the two boxing legends are teaming up to revisit the incident in a rather playful and profitable way.

On Monday, November 14, Tyson and Holyfield introduced a new line of cannabis-infused edibles called "Holy Ears," an obvious play on the ear-biting incident.

The two announced the partnership with a hilarious commercial:

"From Mike Bites to Holy Ears, now cannabis fans around the world can experience the same wellness benefits that plant-based products have brought me. It's a privilege to reunite with my former opponent and now long-time friend, and turn years of fights and knockouts into a partnership that can make a positive impact and heal people," Tyson shared in an official press release.

"Mike and I have a long history of competition and respect for one another. And that night changed both of our lives. Back then, we didn't realize that even as power athletes, we were also in a lot of pain. Now, nearly 20 years later, we have the opportunity to share the medicine we really needed throughout our careers. I'm honored to join the Carma family and partner with Mike and the TYSON 2.0 team to launch Holy Ears, and soon my own line of cannabis products," Holyfield added.

"Holy Ears", which are flavored THC and Delta-8 infused gummies that are shaped like an ear with a bite out of them, will be the first product from Tyson and Holyfield's new cannabis company named Carma Holdings.

Carma Holdings will include Tyson's existing cannabis company called Tyson 2.0.

The company is also expected to launch Holyfield's own cannabis line next year.

"Holy Ears" won't be Tyson's first ear-shaped cannabis venture as Tyson 2.0 already has a product named "Mike Bites" out on the market.
