Yeah, that's right.
Tyson was actually lined up to fight Renaldo Snipes after Ruddock, but the controversy over this stoppage and public demand created the rematch.
And Ruddock did better in the rematch than I think he was ever gonna do in the first fight if Steele had let it go on.
So as bad as this stoppage was, it was completely compensated by the rematch.
Tyson proved his superiority, erased any doubts. And Ruddock got to perform even better than he had in the 1st match.
The wrong has been righted.
