Logan Paul is looking to buy the chunk of Evander Holyfield’s ear Mike Tyson bit off

Logan Paul has revealed his unusual desire to buy Evander Holyfield’s ear, a piece of boxing history. He wants to buy it ahead of his brother Jake Paul’s monumental match against Mike Tyson on Saturday, July 20. It was in Arlington, Texas.

Jake Paul is the younger of the Paul brothers. Jake is set to face Tyson, who was once regarded as the most formidable heavyweight boxer in the world. During his iconic career, Tyson was known for his power and ferocity in the ring.

Despite Tyson’s dominance, he couldn’t best his former rival Evander Holyfield. He defeated Tyson twice in world heavyweight title matches.

Their second bout in June 1997 is infamous for the controversial incident where Tyson bit off a portion of Holyfield’s ear during a clinch.

Referee Mills Lane immediately disqualified Tyson after the bite, allowing Holyfield to retain his WBA heavyweight world title. However, the one-inch piece of cartilage was discovered by an employee at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. But it was never reattached to Holyfield’s ear.

Although there have been differing accounts of why the ear was never put back on, the most popular theory is that it was lost when Holyfield was taken to the hospital.

Although it’s unclear whether the fragment of Holyfield’s ear still remains, Logan Paul was eager to relive some history in advance of Monday night’s first press conference.

Logan Paul expressed a keen interest in acquiring this unique piece of memorabilia. A member of the Most Valuable Promotions team informed Paul that a janitor found the ear piece and returned it to Holyfield.

He said: “The janitor that was sweeping up the ring found it and they gave it back to Holyfield but he didn’t want to put it back on because he thought it looked cool.”

Logan Paul then joked about wanting to buy Holyfield’s ear.

He asked: “Evander has the missing ear?”

The team member replied by saying: “He might have it. They were going to sew it back on but he was like: ‘Nah, f**k it. It looks cool.’ Whoever was sweeping up the ring, they found it like two hours after the fight.”

Paul joked: “I am trying to buy Evander’s ear.”

This is not the first time Paul has gone to great lengths for a unique acquisition, as he previously made headlines for buying the world’s most expensive Pokémon card.

The highly anticipated bout between Jake Paul and Mike Tyson will take place at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. It will be held on Saturday, July 20, and will be featured on Netflix. This match is expected to draw significant attention from boxing fans worldwide.

Logan Paul is set to square off against Cody Rhodes for the WWE Universal title at King and Queen of the Ring in Saudi Arabia on Saturday, May 25.
