Scott'the animal'Lewis over Golden Gloves cheap shot merchant idiotic Queensland type Carl'im ****ing ****'Webb.Lewis was 1-3 by memory and was considered another **** puppet victim in the high profile NRL player undercard Mundine **** play.seeing him staggering around like a drunken spastic and imagining the crying,rum drinking Queensland types is still funny to me to this day.
but seriously Douglas-Tyson is biggest IMO.Mike was considered unbeatable at the time.

Buster Douglas for 1, was a very good skilled technical boxer.
He had 1 awesome jab, was tall at 6.4 and knew how to use his height and reach..He also possessed 1 awesome uppercut, which ended up ending Tyson's night.. He also had a terrific professional fighting style, very loose , relaxed and non-robotic way of fighting.

There is no way he should have been a 42-1 underdog.. That's just way off..

He also had 2 wins against future world champion Oliver Mcall and former world champion Trevor Berbick at the time he fought Tyson.

I really don't see it as the upset people make it out to be.

On the scale of things and the aura of Tyson throughout the early part of his career up to that point, well yes, in my opinion it has to be ranked as the biggest upset.

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

Don't think they've been mentioned, but Turpin over Ray Robinson and Joe Walcott over Ezzard Charles are two that deserve a mention.

I don't like them either... when I get caught. If they slow some of the ****s that are a blight on our roads down, well that's a good thing IMO. Especially the point - to - point ones that slow people down over longer distances.
