I guess it's a saving grace for Tyson fans though. It allowed the myth of Tyson to be perpetuated the whole time he was away. If he hadn't been locked up he would've been disposed and had the Tyson myth shattered by Holyfield in 1991 instead of 1996
of course Tyson had a gap, he was coming out of jail smartone...and Holy weighed 209 lbs in '91, Tyson would've destroyed him...roids helped Holy get to 220 where he got strong enough to muscle Tyson around...
