This article you use runs completely counter to your argument that Tyson was cheated. Read it again - "if there was ever a shred of doubt that Douglas was dazed...it was erased when douglas pounded the ring upon going down." The article is saying that Don King pulled this stuff because he wanted the money, and the long count is bull**** because Douglas was waiting until 9 to get up. He could've gotten up a lot earlier if he wanted. Also - how can you say Tyson was past his prime at this point?
I'd give you that he had an off night, but passed his prime? This Tyson was still indestructible. Douglas was something like a 47-1 underdog and Tyson had never even been an a close fight before. He had trashed all previous opponents. Vegas is not stupid. They're not going to give 47-1 odds on a past his prime fighter. Douglas smoked a legitimate Tyson. Tyson had the physical tools, but he didn't have the mental game, didn't train hard, and never fought anyone who wasn't afraid of him, willing to stand in there, and box him.
