Tyson after training with King Kai and training in 100x Earth's gravity would have knocked Douglas out in Round 1.
He had his own personal doctor help with his training, which helped.
I watched Salvador Sanchez-Jorge "Rocky" Garcia the other day.
Sanchez had UNREAL stamina.
This fight happens tomorrow.
How much of a chance do you give McKinson?
Here's the amazing thing: As good as Sanchez was, he wasn't even in his prime yet. He was only 23 when he died, and fighters usually don't hit...
