Post Comments Thread For: Remember When: A Quarter-Century Past a Dynastic Start

By Lyle Fitzsimmons - Twenty-five years? Really?

While stumbling around the Internet for a few days looking for a coherent nugget upon which to build the week’s column, I instead tripped over yet more evidence of my advancing years.

In November 1986, I was 17 years old. I was a senior in high school. I was a couple months into a relationship with my first real girlfriend. And I hadn’t yet met many of the people – friends, mentors, nemeses – who’ve subsequently made the biggest tangible impacts on my life.

On one particular Saturday that month – the 22nd, to be specific – a big one arrived.

Twenty-five years ago last night.

That Saturday, rather than heading to Brenda’s house for a night of movie-watching or out to the Summit Park Mall for some holiday shopping, I decided to stay home and check out the first HBO spotlight show for a kid I’d read about in KO Magazine and seen a few times on “Wide World of Sports.” [Click Here To Read More]

I was there, at the Hilton that night, and Mike was something to see...
In those first three Championhip years, few HW, in history could have lasted with Mike,
in my opinion...

Wow how time flies. I remember watching ESPN and seeing Donnie Long fight a young prospect named Mike Tyson. I remember thinking how Long would surely test this young kid. Long may not have been a world beater but he gave tough fights in going the distance with former champ John Tate and then undefeated James Broad. To my suprise(and Al Bernstein's) the young prospect destroyed Donnie Long in the opening round and I knew Tyson was going to be something on that night. Hard to imagine how fast time flies, at least it was til this article reminded me.

Thanks
