Yes Tyson had lost to Douglas and he has faced this kind of adversity for the first time as well but Holyfield was different from Douglas, different kind of adversity which Tyson hadnt experienced yet. These guys are world class and the best in the world, why do you think they face adversity when sparring? They dont spar with world champs, they spar with lesser fighters. In the beginning of their careers they face weak opposition then journeymen, they usually KO them in a few rounds, only late in their careers they actually face adversity and Wlad experienced this kind of adversity for the first time.
