it worked

the IBF was instantly recognised as the true heavyweight championship belt when larry holmes took stewardship.

poor tim
he was absolutly pissed off with king taking $970,000 of his $1,000,000 purse v bruno turned up not wanting to be there and bonecrusher decked himand won on the 3 knockdown room v a disintrested witherspoon.

he then got a huge payday v tyson.

he was known as the top 80`s journeyman of that time period and tillis fought a who`s who of 80`s heavies.

there was a cuban jose ribalta , tough man who gave tyson a hard foight around that time as well.

all tysons fights even the very early ones were shown on free to air uk tv.

he was hyped hugley right from the start around the world.

i would have liked bruno to have fought spinks at the time as he would have beaten him IMO.

Here is one for 80s man Sean:

In December 1987 Duke McKenzie beat the tough Juan Herrera. But Herrera was a substitute opponent; who was Duke orginially meant to fight on the date?
