i remember being at work in 1990 and the lads were reading the back page of the sun about tyson fighting douglas that night, and they were asking me what chance i thought douglas had...i had only seen douglas box against tony tucker...and very confidently told the lads that he had more chance of beating tyson than the pope walking into our work the following morning and calling us all ****s...
anyway...i remember thinking around 88/89 period that tyson was so unbeatable that i honestly thought not only was he the youngest ever heavyweight champ but would also be the oldest.
