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

McGovern lost his crown when he was stopped by Young Corbett II in 2 rounds on November 28, 1902. Corbett was so confident of victory, that on his way to the arena he stopped to bang on McGovern's dressing room door and shout "Come out and take your licking". Throughout the fight, Corbett taunted his opponent, causing McGovern to become so enraged that he lost his head. McGovern suffered, what was then called, a 'nervous breakdown' after the fight.
