We love a good COVID-19 meme, don’t we? Especially when it includes a reference to one of the monumental events in the history of boxing. Remember this dude? Well, he, along with the other monumental dude Mike Tyson (which we can refer to as Tooth Fairy), entered history after the bizarre „Bite Fight of ’97,“ June 28, after Tyson bit off a chunk of Holyfield’s ear. This infamous move didn’t only cost Holyfield part of his flesh – it cost the „Iron“ Tyson his boxing license (which was later reinstated, but we love a good dramatic effect, don’t we). The spectators in the MGM Grand Garden Arena had their bit of fun that evening, for sure. Now, decades later, we can enjoy a good meme.
Holyfield’s answer to this meme – yes, the man needed to show he can, actually, put the mask on – prove how powerful memes can be. Even the greatest world athletes can get a bit self-conscious. Don’t sweat it, „The Real Deal“ Holyfield! We know you can HEAR us!
We do know wearing a mask is a pain in the as-I mean, neck, especially in the hot summer. However, Radass peeps, please make sure to do so. Or don’t breathe. Or socialize. It’s a zombie world out there.
