Mike Tyson Tells Us What Holyfield's Ear Tasted Like [VIDEO]
Does It Taste Like Chicken?
Bravo host Andy Cohen had Mike Tyson on the hot seat Sunday on Watch What Happens: Live, and of course he asked him the one thing we've all always wanted to ask the former boxing champ: what, exactly, does a human ear taste like?
Surprisingly, the answer, as it often is, was not "like chicken."
Cohen posed the question to Broadway-bound Tyson during the WWHL trademark "Plead the Fifth" game on Sunday, and here's Tyson's culinary review of Evander Holyfield's ear, which he infamously chomped off during a 1997 match.
"It depends on which ear you bite," Tyson said. "But since I bit Holyfield's ear -- and it didn't have any of that Holyfield hot sauce on it -- it wasn't too tasty."
And if the ear had had hot sauce on it?
"That would have been a delicacy!" Tyson said.
By the way, the Evander Holyfield sauce is a real thing. A four pack of Evander Holyfield's Real Deal BBQ Sauce will set you back $19.96 (plus shipping, of course) at RealDealBQSauce.com.
Holyfield and Tyson -- who was disqualified in that 1997 boxing match after biting both of Holyfield's ears -- joked with each other about the incident last month on Twitter.
Wrote @Holyfield: "My realdealbbqsauce.com will make u wanna take a bite out of someone's ear! Ask @MikeTyson - Luv ya bro!"
Responded @MikeTyson: "@Holyfield's ear would've been much better with his new BBQ sauce. check it out."
