Anyone catch the fight last night...My favorite fight of all time, Buster getting the early rounds, Tyson fighting back with an incredible knockdown, and of course Buster's KO uppercut, followe by a right left combination...Unbeliveable upset....What do you guys think about the fight?

Definitely a classic. 41-0 underdog tearing away the venere of invincibility that had shrouded Tyson for years. Just a stunning victory.

It's a beautiful sight watching that fight. Even if Douglas did not knock Tyson out he was going to eventually get the unanimous decision, unless King had the three blind mice rigged. That fight was not even that close up until Tyson knocked Douglas down. Even after the round that Douglas went down he came out after the kd and dominated Tyson in the 9th round softening him up for the KO in the 10th round.

If I recall correctly, one or more judges had tyson ahead on their cards when the fight was stopped. Hard to believe he was watching the same fight. It is eerie how quite the japanese crowd was. Could you imagine how loud that fight would have been if it took place in Vegas? Unfortunetly, Douglas coming in to fight Holyfield looking like shamu tarnished what a true masterpiece this fight was.

I hate watching that fight, it was the beginning of the end of the Tyson era.
