Remembering Tyson-Holyfield II

Mike Tyson may go down as one of the top fighters in boxing history, but he will forever be remembered for the 1997 fight in which he bit off a chunk of Evander Holyfield's ear. It was the second fight between the two rivals; Holyfield had upset Tyson with an 11th round TKO in the first fight seven months earlier. In the rematch, Tyson was disqualified after the third round for biting and a near riot broke out in the ring afterwards. Fifteen years later, SI looks back at the memorable night.
