Tim Bradley, a former boxer in his own right, was shocked when Berlanga attempted to bite Angulo. Thankfully for the Columbia fighter, Berlanda was not able to get a piece of his ear.

He moved away before Berlanga was able to make contact with his ear. It was believed that Berlanga may have been losing when he attempted to get close to Angulo’s ear.

On June 28th, 1997, heavyweight boxer Mike Tyson took a bite out of Evander Holyfield’s ear. This fight is historically known as The Bite Fight.

When the two legends of boxing were in close quarters, Tyson went after Holyfield’s left ear. Not only did Tyson do it once, but he went after Holyfield’s ear twice.
