Tyson & Douglas
JAMES (BUSTER) DOUGLAS vs. MIKE TYSON, ko 10
Feb. 11, 1990/Tokyo, Japan


  This 42-1 longshot wrote the punch line for every joke-of-a-challenger. Douglas dominated the undefeated, undisputed champ, and rallied from an 8th round knockdown to score one of the biggest upsets in sports history. Eight months later Douglas parlayed the victory into a $24 million payday for his one and only defense, a third-round knockout loss to Evander Holyfield.
