By the time it was over, Holyfield wasn't. (groan)
He’ll be here all week, ladies and germs. Tip your waitress.
Holy taught the bully Tyson a lesson:
You wanna play, get in the sandbox.
Dirty little boy Mikey started whining as soon as someone decided two could play at that game.
And the next week. And the week after that. Thank you. Thankyouverymuch.
It was a case like most Tyson fights. When someone knew how to neutralize his offense and punch themselves, the tide was turned. Easier said than done.
You've left primary school?
The rematch was where it should have happened. Both boxers were "better trained", less lethargic, more energetic. That was an all-time classic-knockout-in-the-waiting to happen. Until..
Ya, in turn, I find the Bite Fight to be very underrated as a fight, rather than the controversy that surrounds it. It really was a good fight despite all of that.
Heavyweight intensity off the charts. And Tyson just could not handle it.
Hey, Holyfield fought on after the first bite. And Tyson still couldn't handle it.
One of Holy's greatest performances. Who else can boast pounding a guy after having both of his ears chomped off. Very underrated performance from Holyfield.
The KO was no more than two rounds away for Holyfield. I actually feel pretty confident in saying that.
If Tyson was frustrated enough to bite both of Evander's ears, he might have just quit on his stool in a round or two. Should have done that instead. Better for his dignity and better for Evander's ears.
I expect Tyson himself knew a KO was coming his way. Sooner rather than later.
Kind of like Andrew Golota fouling Bowe because he knew that he wouldn't be able to knock him out.
He pretty much did.
One of the few guys out there who could give BHop lessons in that style.
Mike didn't make a meal out of his ear out of the blue, just for kicks.
