Holyfield weighs in on World Cup bite
NATAL, Brazil (AP) — It was inevitable: Evander Holyfield has weighed in on Luis Suarez’s bite.
Television replays appeared to show the Uruguay striker digging his teeth into the shoulder of Italy’s Giorgio Chiellini late in their group stage finale. About a minute later, Uruguay scored the go-ahead goal in the 81st minute and went on to win 1-0 to advance at the World Cup, eliminating the Italians.
It may be the most famous sports bite since Mike Tyson chomped on Holyfield’s ear during their 1997 title fight.
Holyfield, who has since made up with Tyson, tweeted Tuesday: “I guess any part of the body is up for eating.”
Tyson hadn’t chimed in — yet.
