This Day in Sports 1988

It really is a shame what happened to Tyson’s career. This fight is considered by many to be his peak. Unfortunatly Tyson didn’t really end up amounting to all the hype but for a few short years he was a force to be reckoned with.

But i can guess what it’s about.

Yeah, Tyson is definitely one of boxing’s sad wasted potential stories. I don’t blame any man for being absolutely terrified at the prospect of fighting a young, prime Tyson, really everything you could want in a heavyweight fighter. Speed, power, precision and movement.

The heavyweight division is in desperate need of a Tyson-esque young fighter to come cause a storm. But I won’t hold my breath.
