1997: The Nevada State Athletic Commission bans Mike Tyson from the boxing ring and fines him $3 million for twice biting the ears of opponent Evander Holyfield in a June 28, 1997, bout. A little more than a year later on Oct. 18, 1998, the commission would vote 4–1 to restore Tyson's boxing license.
