Mike Tyson has celebrated Thanksgiving in quirky fashion as the former heavyweight king ate Roy Jones Jr’s ‘ear’ as the pair’s huge exhibition bout edges closer. 

The 54-year-old is making his highly-anticipated boxing comeback after 15 years out of the ring against fellow great Jones Jr in an eight-round exhibition fight in Los Angeles on Sunday morning.

The blockbuster clash, which ex-four-weight world champion Jones Jr recently described as ‘bucket-list material,’ has already broken pay-per-view records despite the fight having a ‘no knockout rule’ in place and will be stopped if either boxer suffers a cut. 

Many fans are intrigued as to whether they will once again catch a glimpse of Tyson’s persona as ‘the baddest man on the planet’ will make a return this weekend.

In his pomp, ‘Iron Mike’ took no prisoners, blitzing all manner of opponent that stood across the ring from the Brooklyn-born star. 

However, he was at times clouded by controversy, the most high-profile being when he bit the ear of Evander Holyfield during the pair’s mammoth grudge rematch in 1997.

And Tyson has made reference to the controversial moment in a new video titled ‘Thanksgiving with the Tyson’s’ in which the fan-favourite carves up a cake of Jones Jr for his underwhelmed children. 

Presenting the Jones Jr cake to his kids, Tyson explains that it is a ‘turkey’ before revealing ‘I like ears’. ‘Tastes so much better than Evander’s, Roy tastes real good,’ Tyson quips in the quirky video.
