Tyson was getting frustrated, and he bit Holyfield's ear! A few minutes went by, and Holyfield reacted again. Amazingly, Tyson had bitten his ear again! The fight was soon called, and we were all stunned.
From the back of the Charleston (S.C.) Post and Courier sports department, the always-quiet Rusty Boggs spoke up. "I have the headline," he said.
"Bite of the Century."
Right on. You go, Rusty.
P.S.: Sadly, Rusty died some time ago. I still think of him fondly.
