I have often been critical of Tyson fans who claim that Douglas went from being a non entity to an all time great and then back again.
But I have to admit that if all I had seen of Douglas was the Tyson fight and knew nothing else I would thing he was an all time great. Say that I had been in a coma for 50 years (not hard to imagine given my boxing opinions) and then saw Tyson Douglas.
I would think that I had just seen the start of the Douglas era. Definitely one of my favourite fights.
