Edgar Berlanga banned from boxing for six months and fined $10,000 for attempted bite

Super-middleweight Edgar Berlanga has been suspended for six months and fined $10,000 for attempting to bite opponent Roamer Alexis Angulo during their bout earlier this month, according to reports.

The New York State Athletic Commission applied the punishments following the fight at Madison Square Garden on June 11 which Berlanga won via unanimous decision.

The 25-year-old tried to bite Angulo on the left shoulder while they were in a clinch during the seventh round of the NABO super-middleweight title match, but referee Ricky Gonzalez did not see the incident at the time.

Berlanga joked afterwards, "I was about to do a Mike Tyson on him," referencing when Tyson bit Evander Holyfield's ear back in 1997.
