Ivan Redkach bites Danny Garcia, says ‘Mike Tyson!’

Ivan Redkach bites Danny Garcia

Danny Garcia beat Ivan Redkach as expected on Saturday night, but a surprise came in the form of a Mike Tyson moment.

During the eighth round of their fight at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, Redkach bit Garcia on the trapezius.

Redkach was pretty self-aware in the moment. Garcia said in his postfight interview on Showtime that Redkach said “Mike Tyson” after the bite.

“[Redkach] bit me. He said ‘Mike Tyson!’ when he bit me,” Garcia told Jim Gray. “I said, ‘ref, he bit me!'”

Garcia said it was his “first time ever getting bitten in a fight.”

Tyson infamously bit Evander Holyfield in both ears during their rematch in 1997.

Garcia is now 36-2 following the win. He says he is open to facing Errol Spence Jr., Manny Pacquiao, Keith Thurman, or Mikey Garcia next. Garcia’s first career loss came against Thurman.
