The Mike Tyson of Horse Racing: Watch Del Mar Horse Bite Opponent [VIDEO]

By Brian Ethridge, Posted: 08/14/12 03:54PM EDT

Just like boxing, once upon a time horse racing was one of the most popular sports in the world. Unfortunately, both sports have lost a tremendous amount of popularity throughout the years and they are currently only relevant maybe once or twice every 12 months at most. With that said, it should come as no surprise to anyone that the athletes (or animals) involved in these sports are willing to do just about anything to make an ESPN Sportcenter highlight. Even if that means trying to bite off their opponent's ear.

As you can tell from the video above, one race horse was so pissed that it couldn't catch up with its opponent that it turned its head, channeled its inner Mike Tyson, and tried to bite off the faster horse's ear.

Luckily for the winning horse the runner-up's attempt at biting an ear off wasn't as successful as Mike Tyson's attempt in 1997 when he successfully bit off a nice juicy chunk of Evander Holyfield's ear. To be fair, Mike Tyson later complained that he was being head butted throughout the match. What's the horses excuse?

No word on if the wannabe Mike Tyson will be reprimanded from horse racing or not, but word from the stables is that he has become the most feared horse at the Del Mar racetrack in Southern California.

He may not be the fastest, quickest, biggest or strongest horse in the world. But that's okay. If you beat him, he's not afraid to bite your ear off. And that has to count for something.

The only thing that could top a race horse trying to bite off another horse's ear in a race would be if a jockey tried to bite off another jockey's ear. Or better yet, if a jockey tried to bite off his own horse's ear in an attempt to speed it up.
