Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has a biting problem. The 26-year-old has been at the center of a number of controversies throughout his career, but the biting seems to generate the most buzz. As you can see from the video above, Suarez appeared to bite Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic in the arm during a match over the weekend. In November of 2010, Suarez was given a seven-game ban by the Dutch FA for biting a different opponent. As a result of his most recent incident, Suarez has been slapped with a massive fine from his club. An investigation from the FA will determine how long his latest ban will be, but it is expected to be quite significant. Now onto the good stuff. Mike Tyson recently decided to start following Suarez on Twitter. See the connection there? During an appearance on “The David Glenn Show” on Monday, Iron Mike was asked about it. “I just sort of got on the the Twitter thing and I said hey, um, this is an interesting guy, let me follow him, check him out, see what his journey’s all about,” Tyson explained, via The Big Lead. “You know, he bit somebody, you know it happens, you know what I mean? I’m sure he made amends with his guy, I made amends with Evander (Holyfield), and we go on with our lives.” I’m sure Suarez can take comfort knowing that he’s not the only professional athlete in the world who can be classified as a “biter.” It does appear that Tyson and Holyfield have buried the hatchet judging by jokes like this, but Suarez’s incident is a bit more fresh. For what it’s worth, Ivanovic has not accepted Suarez apology. Perhaps he will some day. If Holyfield can get over Tyson nearly costing him an ear, I’m sure Ivanovic will get past some bite marks on his arm. That being said, Suarez needs to go.
