The fact he did this at 20 years of age is what makes it even more impressive.
I believe that has a lot to do with why he is ranked highly by so many people. For a while he did look invincible and it got to the point where his opponents just attempted to survive. Douglas was a 40-1 underdog for a reason and that might still be the biggest upset of all time.
