Default If Douglas had decisioned Tyson

According to the boxrec scores, Tyson was leading on one scorecard by a point, behind 88-82 on another card, and drawing even on the third. I score heavily in Buster's favor going into the 10th personally.

Suppose Douglas had won a UD, which it looks like he was capable of doing had he swept rounds 10-12? How would that affect his legacy? What about Tyson's?

Better question, after the tyson knockdown of Douglas if the ref started his count on time tyson would have won.

Douglas would of still been famous but not as decorated, its the difference between beating the champ and destroying the champ. Tyson would of probably got a rematch with Douglas considering Tyson did knock him down and almost won himself, Tysons legacy wouldve changed much just one less knockout against him on his record.

It would not effect Douglas' legacy at all, because Douglas' "legacy" is putting on ONE good performance.
It would have slightly helped Tyson's legacy because it would be one less time that he got knocked out. (Tyson's never lost on the cards he always lost by getting stopped)
Do we assume that TYson gets dropped, but then gets up to finish the fight? Or that He never gets dropped?
The first would probably be more popular. People like it when fighter's get up to try some more.

I disagree. I think Douglas was of sound mind and body. He would've gotten up on time.

I guess in the same way that Neil Armstrong is remembered. When you're the first to do something incredible, you get remembered.

Armstrong didnt embarrass us with his actions later. He kept a dignified persona.

This is the same Buster who took a dive against Holyfield after all the adulation given to him

No he had a couple losses coming in, the winner of Mccall/Douglas got the opertunity to fight Tyson. I really believe Mccall would of beat Tyson that night as well.

If you watch the fight between Douglas/Holyfield, Douglas was just out classed and when Douglas threw a lazy uppercut and missed Holyfield landed with a perfect counter hook. Theres no way Douglas took a dive in that fight in my opinion.

The amazing thing about this fight is I don't understand how it could have gotten to the scorecards (or the 10th, for that matter) when Tyson already KO'd him in the 8th.

God, enough with this long count arguement. Its not the fighters fault, and Buster would have stood up in time had the ref counted fast. He was fine.
