Tyson's sparring partners were beating him up daily. I think Trevor Berbick was one of them also. I know Greg Page was there cuz he knocked Tyson down. If this is what was happening in camp I think McCall would have definitely had a chance. He knew Tyson inside and out but he didn't beat Douglas so it's all academic.

Thats what I was trying to say, Tyson was there for the taking at that point in 1990. Rooney wasnt in his corner, he had that fruit cake Erin snow in his corner with a rubber glove on his eye trying to take down the swelling. If my memory serves me correctly Page knocked down Tyson in 1988 before the Spinks fight, sometimes you just get caught.
