Fail, fail, fail, fail, succeed

A Big Lesson From a Big Man

After his second fight with Mike Tyson was stopped on a disqualification, because Mike had bitten chunks out his ear not once, but twice, Evander Holyfield’s initial reaction was, of course, anger.

We know that today, 22 years later, Evander has been vocal about forgiving Tyson, which is pretty amazing by itself. But how long did it take?

In a recent interview, Holyfield answered that question without hesitation.

“By the time I got back in the locker room, I had forgiven him. My whole team was angry, but I just asked them, Whose ear did he bite? Mine, and I’m saying I forgive him.”
