1997: In the rematch of their first boxing match seven months earlier, won by Evander Holyfield, Mike Tyson is disqualified for biting Holyfield on both of his ears during the third round at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The first bite took off a one-inch piece of cartilage from the top of Holyfield's ear. The Nevada State Athletic Commission later revoked Tyson's boxing license for a little more than a year and he was fined $3 million plus legal costs.
