SPORT: Mike Tyson sells cannabis edibles shaped like an ear in reference to Evander Holyfield’s bite.

MIKE TYSON is sell­ing cannabis edi­bles shaped like an ear with a miss­ing piece — ref­er­enc­ing his infa­mous bite on Evan­der Holyfield.

The heavy­weight box­ing icon has been sell­ing cannabis prod­ucts since 2016 through his Tyson Holis­tic label.

And his lat­est launch is “Mike Bites” — ear-shaped edi­bles — but most impor­tant­ly, a piece is missing.

It’s a hilar­i­ous nod to Tyson’s unfor­get­table 1997 rematch with Holy­field that end­ed in disgrace.

Tyson owns a mas­sive weed farm in Cal­i­for­nia that report­ed­ly brings in around $650,000 a month.

Iron Mike is tak­ing advan­tage of the state’s legal­iza­tion of recre­ation­al mar­i­jua­na, and Tyson Ranch has 20 acres for mas­ter weed growers.

Cannabis-infused can­dy sachets are part of his new range of herbal prod­ucts — and date back to June 1997 when he bit off a piece of Holy­field­’s ear.

Iron Mike had been beat­en the pre­vi­ous year in round 11 — which at the time was con­sid­ered a shock.

But the upheaval is lost in mem­o­ry thanks to what hap­pened eight months later.

Tyson, grow­ing frus­trat­ed with what he claimed was head­but­ting and supe­ri­or box­ing from Holy­field, in the third round bit his rival.

This caused hav­oc in the ring, with the youngest heavy­weight cham­pi­on of all time being dis­qual­i­fied, caus­ing a riot between the oppos­ing camps.

Tyson was sus­pend­ed for 15 months, fined $3 mil­lion and dis­graced by the box­ing public.

Over the past few years, he’s struck up an unlike­ly friend­ship with Holy­field and the pair even starred in a Foot Lock­er advert in 2013.

They hugged in the com­mer­cial and Tyson bizarrely gave his for­mer oppo­nent a piece of his ear back.

Nonethe­less, after Iron Mike, 55, and Holy­field, 59, both made ques­tion­able returns last year, they were in talks for a mega-mon­ey trilogy.

Luck­i­ly for both — now with a com­bined age of 114 — nego­ti­a­tions fell through and nei­ther has spo­ken seri­ous­ly about box­ing since.
