Holyfield’s ear was famously bitten on June 28, 1997 by boxer Mike Tyson, who was then disqualified in the heavyweight championship rematch in Las Vegas.
After Uruguay defeated Italy 1-0 today at the World Cup, former boxer Evander Holyfield — no stranger to being bitten himself — tweeted about Uruguayan player Luis Suarez appearing to bite an opponent.
Holyfield even re-tweeted the following Tweet from a fan:

And now somewhere, Evander Holyfield is watching the rest of today’s World Cup action in an undisclosed location….
The Internet exploded with comments and jokes about Suarez’s apparent bite:
