(Rich Schultz/Getty Images)”I want to apologize for my actions and what I said yesterday about the Mike Tyson bite. I was in the moment and got a little ahead of myself. It doesn’t take away from the embarrassment that I have caused upon myself, my team, top ranks, and many others,” he wrote.”I reacted poorly and take full responsibility. Moving forward, I am going to be more mindful and encouraging in my behavior. Once again, I do apologize.”The infamous Tyson bite occurred in his second fight against Evander Holyfield in 1997. Tyson bit a one-inch chunk of Holyfield’s ear off and spit it out. Tyson was later disqualified. He would say in later interviews the bite was in retaliation to multiple headbutts from Holyfield.CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP
