So are you saying a KO round 12 is the same as a KO round 1

Agree with you. Larry was robbed in the rematch with Michael Spinks imo. Spinks rightfully won a close but clear decision in their first bout. Larry was very lethargic in the first fight.

Put it this way, it took me three hours to convince a mate that Tyson had lost.

Read 'The Last Great Fight' which covers the whole fight and before and after, a great read.

I'd say its the biggest upset, followed by Tyson-Holyfield I. Who knew Evander had anything left?
Me I looked like Nostra-****in-damas at school on Monday.

I watched it at The Exchange in Kal, the lone Vander fan in the place at the start of the telecast. By the end I had a few hundred new members in my gang.

Both were past their best. He'd have ****ed him harder back in the early 90s but Tyson bitched out numerous times. Evander = Tyson's Daddy... fact.

Yer Even the early 90s Tyson had lost most of what he had, throwing single punches and getting away from his head movement. Early 90s was probably the peak of Evan Fields career

I cant understand how Holy v Tyson 1 is regarded as a great fight. I've never seen so much clinching in my life. Would have been an atg UFC fight for sure.

Prime Tyson would have ****ed him up seriously = fact.

Laughable. Tyson was a bully and you've got to be more than that when jumping in the with the Real Deal. Prime Tyson looked ordinary against Bonecrusher Smith. Jog on... and remember, Holy whipped him and made him quit.

I agree with what you're saying about Tyson.. He always lost the explosive speed and reflex by mid rounds. Larger guys who managed to last until that point were soundly thrashed, as Tyson continued heavy handedly, albeit much slower..

BTW.. I always love it when a man in your line of work calls another person a 'bully'. Cracks me up everytime.
