Mike Tyson isn’t among the hordes of people criticizing Uruguay striker Luis Suarez as he understands what he went through.
Former world heavyweight boxing champion Tyson, who himself once infamously chewed off part of the ear of Evander Holyfield during a title fight, has empathised with the Liverpool striker.
“Suarez’s bite? I understand it. It was a blackout moment which can happen at times,” Tyson replied during a Q&A on social networking service Reddit.
“It was just one moment in which the competition can make the blood in your veins boil and it overpowers your rationality.
“Sometimes you become something that you are not.”
