Default Re: Terry McGovern, the original prototype of Mike Tyson.

McGovern found himself up against an oponent who not only had his number stylisticaly but also mentaly as well. He lost his title and with his aura of invincibility shatered he would never regain his fearsome form.

It is imposible to under rate the importance of McGoverns contribution to modern boxing technique. There has been much speculation on this forum about which boxers pioneered the modern style of fighting, fast paced, offense orientated and often coming to a rapid conclusion. There seems to be little doubt in the minds of contemporary writers that it was McGovern as this obituary to his title reign demonstrates.
