Boxer Youness Baalla Tries To Bite Opponent’s Ear During Olympics Bout

ANKARA, July 28– Moroccan boxer Youness Baalla attempted to bite off his New Zealand opponent David Nyika’s ear during a match on Tuesday at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

According to Anadolu Agency, Baalla attempted to bite Nyika’s ear in the third and final round of the bout.

Nyika said, after the match, that it was unfortunate that the referee could not see what had happened.

“He couldn’t get my ear into his mouth. I am lucky for that,” said Nyika, who won 5-0 and advanced to quarter-final.

The fight drew comparisons with a 1997 infamous bout between Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield.

In the second heavyweight championship match between the two in the US state of Nevada, Tyson bit a part of Holyfield’s ear off and was disqualified.

Tyson’s boxing licence was revoked for 15 months after the incident.
