Tyson, Holyfield and philanthropist Yank Barry are today's guests on "Larry King Now," chatting about how they've used their celebrity and power to help feed the hungry. But the two couldn't join Larry King without bringing up their storied rivalry, and the wide-spread coverage it received in its heyday.
"Michael is like a rattlesnake," said Holyfield. "He had a distance like he couldn't get you, and he'd get you."And you know they couldn't leave the studio without talking about the infamous bout that ended when Tyson bit Holyfield's ear in 1997.
"I probably would have bitten him again," said Tyson. "I was really angry too."
