Letter: Better bitten than bashed

Sir: I am appalled by the hypocrisy with which the media have reported the Mike Tyson incident (Sport; "He bit my ear and spat it out", 30 June). From what I can conclude it is completely unacceptable to bite off an opponent's ear in a boxing match, but it is perfectly acceptable for boxers to get into a ring and attempt to pummel each others' brains.

I know where I stand. I'd rather have my ear bitten off than my brains mashed.
