Mike Tyson’s memorable and emotional appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show on Monday (October 12) has not only given a big boost in exposure for his new documentary Tyson, but it’s also resulting in a reunion with boxing rival Evander Holyfield, who Tyson bit during their second fight in June 1997.

During Tyson’s interview with Oprah, he discussed the infamous ear-biting incident, explaining that he was frustrated with Holyfield following numerous headbutts. He admitted that he hasn’t spoken to Holyfield since and Oprah is making that happen.

Both legendary boxers will reunite on her live show on Friday (October 16), during a follow-up interview where Tyson will take questions from the studio audience and speak about the overwhelming reaction he’s had since his first interview.

Oprah will also give viewers a first look at the new Michael Jackson documentary, This Is It, on Friday’s show.
