Default Mike Tyson's ring attire...

I never much thought about it, but why did Mike insist on wearing only black trunks since '86? Also, was he the innovator in wearing a torn towel? I don't recall any boxers really doing that prior to him...

That's what I thought. And Mike was wearing that gear before D'Amato died too.

I believe Mike was even fined once by the commission for rockin the black trunks to a fight when he was supposed to show in a different color (the commentators mention it, though I don't recall which fight it was).

The Berbick fight. The champion gets to wear the colors and Tyson had to pay a hefty fine for wearing it also. It was his shining moment so I can understand it.
