Just hearing the phrase "The Bite Fight" immediately takes you back to that late June evening in 1997 where the world became transfixed on the events that unfolded in Las Vegas.

Sixteen years later, Mike Tyson has come to peace with his action, and a new book written by George Willis explores all the elements that led up to the climactic battle between Tyson and Evander Holyfield.

We caught up with Tyson at Bounce Sporting Club in New York to hear his thoughts on Floyd Mayweather and what he had to say about the new book The Bite Fight: Tyson, Holyfield and the Night That Changed Boxing Forever.
