I've appreciated this fight more as the years go by. The adjustments Tyson made while outjabbing Tucker down the stretch was astonishing. TNT had a huge height & reach advantage - more so than the usual Tyson deficit - but to no avail.
I'm still waiting for someone to rock that jheri curl/mullet throwback Tucker encompassed which was so prevalent throughout the great decade called the 80's.
