On the heels of a bizarre biting incident at the World Cup, on Tuesday evening Anderson Cooper welcomed CNN's Amanda Davies and former boxing champion Evander Holyfield, asking each to offer their reaction.
In a match against Italy, Uruguay star Luis Suárez allegedly chomped down on opponent Giorgio Chiellini's shoulder, and as Davies noted, it's hardly the striker's only incident.
"It's not the first time it's happened, it's not the second time it's happened, it's the third time it has happened," she explained. "This is a man whose nickname among the Dutch and the British media is 'The Cannibal.'"
Holyfield, meanwhile, was famously bitten on the ear during a fight with Mike Tyson, and on Tuesday took to his Twitter account to draw the parallel:
I guess any part of the body is up for eating.

Of Suarez's accused behavior, Holyfield admitted to being disheartened.
"It was sad in one aspect because it's been done many a time," he told Cooper. "It's an awful thing."
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
