That was not an upset at all. Tyson was a shot bum at the time he got beat up by Lewis and didn't even throw any punches - almost like Mike wanted to get knocked out.

Tyson - Douglas is the biggest upset in boxing history.

Then again anybody who would have beat Tyson from 86-92 would have been the biggest upset in history. That's how great Tyson was - he turned Buster into a household name star over night.

Tyson vs Holyfield 1

Hell the odds were 33:1

Obviously not quite Tyson Douglas, but it deserves a mention.

Purely from only the fights I've witnessed.....Douglas vs Tyson......I'm pretty sure there are "greater" out there......

On paper...DLH vs. Pac was a big one...but after the weigh-in....DLH and his Kangaroo / Spinach Balls diet was all for not...:fing02:

Not really,they were 25 to 1 when they started.

By fight time they were 6 to 1.
