In 'Twice Bitten', renowned sports columnist George Willis details what triggered Tyson's mad act of violence and reveals the answers to the following questions: what happened to the piece of ear that Tyson chewed off and spit out? Why didn't Holyfield reattach it? And was it popping champagne bottles or gunshots that caused a near riot in the MGM corridors and casinos that night?
