The Bite Fight

MMDE: TV showed Tyson bite off part of Holyfields ear

Current: TV didn't show Tyson bite off part of Holyfields ear

In 1997 the  Evander Holyfield vs Mike Tyson boxing match was billed as "The Sound and the Fury". It also notoriously gained another name: "The Bite Fight", because Mike Tyson was disqualified for biting Holyfields ear. Millions across the world saw this - there is no dispute the ear was bitten. However, many remember the TV showing Tyson actually biting a chunk clean off the ear and spitting it out, for which there is no record today. They swear they saw this on TV and it is not a false memory. Is it a Mandela Effect? 

Not only do the videos of this today not show this, but many remember the fight being stopped when the ear was spat out. When seen today, the fight continues.
