Default Re: Buster Douglas as a top 100 heavyweight

Funny you should mention this. I've probably watched this fight ten or twelve times over the years and have come to the same conclusion every time:

When he beat Tyson, Douglas put on an all-time great performance. For that moment, he could have given hell to any heavyweight in history.

It wasn't just a less than stellar Tyson that made Douglas look good. Douglas was that good... that night. His style for that fight was reminiscent of a peak Rid**** Bowe, but better.

Too bad Tyson's distractions and incompetent corner work have undermined the perception of what Buster Douglas accomplished that night.
