I don't think Tyson was in the least bit concerned by Mathis's tactics. Mike was doing next to nothing, just getting a few rounds in. He knew he could close the show whenever he wanted......and it was the first half decent combination that he threw that did just that.
Even rusty 1995 Tyson was several leagues higher than the Buster Mathis Jnrs.
