Sometimes things can get out of hand in the world of sports, and then other times it is just crazy…..

The world of sports is competitive by default; two separate entities of opposing sides face off to see who is the best at their respective profession. Whether it’s NFL, NBA, soccer, baseball, or just about any main stream sport, things can go south very quickly when emotions run high.

Unfortunately for those viewing at home, and representatives of sport, these kinds of behaviour are somewhat shameful. Nonetheless, they can also hold valuable lessons for those involved.

The most crazy sports moments I remember seeing was when Mike Tyson bit Evander Holyfield’s ear. Tyson fought Holyfield for the second time after losing to “The Real Deal” in 1996. “Kid Dynamite” stepped in to the ring on June 28th 1997, and looked to win back his WBA heavyweight title that he had lost in the first fight to Holyfield.

Tyson proved to the 1.98 million homes that tuned in to watch that he was indeed the scariest man on the planet, but for all the wrong reasons. Accusations of headbutting in the first fight seemed to somewhat mar Holyfield’s win, so the rematch was set immediately. Second time around though, it was Tyson who did the real dirty work.

In the third round referee Mills Lane deducted points for Tyson biting Holyfield’s ear, but it wasn’t enough; the former champion lunged in right away and bit a huge chunk of his foes ear off, spitting in on the canvas and forcing the referee to disqualify him. Mayhem ensued, and the moment will go down in my mind as the most insane sequence of events in any pro sport.
