Whatever the walls were made of, Tyson was agitated because Lewis was complaining about his hand wraps.

Unless my memory is playing Tricks on me (Quite Possible ! ) Didnt Oscar Bonavena do Likewise before facing Ali ?? Presumably Plasterboard partitioning - (Not Brickwork ! ) - and a well wrapped hand. As a crude "Unsettler" it might work in some instances ?

How about Bert Sugar's version were Tyson punches a hole through the wall and ends up right underneath Spinks nose who was sitting down in the room next door. ****ing Hilarious. LOL

I doubt he was literally punching at or through walls

But whatever he was doing, it freaked Butch Lewis the fck out ... or maybe he was trying to make excuses for Spinks being completely raped by Mike

He did say that the version of Mike that fought Spinks was unlike any that we had seen before ... that it was the finished product.

Tyson had a lot going on inside his head -- weren't Cayton & Co. served with papers before the fight, breaking up Team Tyson so Tyson could go with Don King?

And wasn't this whole thing powered by Robin Givens and her mother, who were taking control (with King's encouragement)?

Angry, frustrated young man.
