Do you guys remember when this went down?


I was 8 at the time, and remember Tyson was the baddest dude alive. Couldn't believe he lost.

That fight was awesome. The finest example of one man on a quest vs. a man who thought he was all that.

Tyson never fully recovered from that, either. I remember watching him try to put the mouth piece back in and look cool when it was sticking sideways out of his mouth.

Ahh, the good old days when heavyweight championship bouts were on HBO. I was watching the fight while mom was asleep on the couch. I had to wake her up to see the ending. :rolleyes: I used to get HBO for free by fiddling with the cable box. :)

I won 25 bucks: me and my friends bet 2 dollars against $100 from another friend who was an "expert" in boxing. He was actually an expert in boxing but not gambling.
