Mike Tyson Eats An Ear From A Roy Jones Jr. Cake

Mike Tyson has shared a video of him eating one of the ears from a Roy Jones Jr. Cake.

The boxing icon is set to make his return to the ring this weekend in an exhibition against the former heavyweight champion.

But in preparation of the hotly-anticipated bout, Iron Mike took the opportunity to poke fun at his Jones by chowing down on a cake shaped like his head.

In the video, the 54-year-old can be seen enjoying a nice Thanksgiving dinner with his kids.

He then unveils the pretty creepy dessert to finish off the meal.

With a knife in hand, Tyson asks which part of the head his children want, with his daughter taking the nose and his son the head.

You probably know by now which part Tyson is going for.

In reference to his most infamous fight, the 1997 heavyweight title bout with Evander Holyfield where he bit a chunk from his right ear, Tyson tucks into the lobe.

And if you don't get the reference straight away, don't worry, mid-chew Tyson declares: "It tastes so much better than Evander's."

It's good to see that he can laugh about it now.

But given that it's a cake the size of a human head, Tyson and his kids don't manage to eat it all. So to add insult to injury they leave the rest of it to their dog to polish off.

Tyson and Jones, 51, are set to go toe-to-toe tomorrow night (28 November) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

However, due to the men's ages and the fact it is a charity event, there are a number of rule changes.

For example, the California commission that has sanctioned the bout has ruled that it will just be 'hard sparring' and there will be no knockouts, so if you're looking for someone's head to be taken off, you might be a little disappointed. Though with 'the baddest man on the planet' being involved, I guess you never know what's going to happen.

The fight will also consist of eight two-minute rounds.

And while both men will have to wear 12-ounce gloves, larger than usual, they will not have to wear headgear.

Also, if either fighter is cut, the bout will be brought to an end, and even if they both make it to the end - by some miracle - without bloodshed, there will be no winner.

So it promises to be a rip-roaring event.

According to BoxingScene, drug testing for marijuana ahead of the event also 'won't be included'.

It's understood the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) will test for every other performance enhancing drug prior to and after the event - but weed won't be one of them. And, well, there's a pretty good reason for that.
