Buster was really good and gdamn did his punches have range; look how wide his stance is! Mike needed to keep him off balance but wasnt quite up to form while Buster was in the shape of his life; check out the punch volume!

Wladimir was not as good as his brother Vitali Klitschko . Tyson Fury is a big joke . During Holyfield and Bowe's era hvy weights would make mince meat out of Fury . He's a big dork

Hard to see Tyson collapse, but that's life there is an end to everything but Tyson sure lived and enjoyed his legacy and will remain a legend in history of boxing..

Even though Tyson got knocked out here, he was taking some hard direct shots to the face and still was able to stay standing that would've floored a lesser fighter. He was tough, even though he lost here.

Why Tyson was so dependimg of his trainer , does all boxers have that crucial link ??? / ALI looked more independent... sad to see a so skilled boxer like Tyson completely dismantled ... he was able to combine all aspect of classical boxing jab uppercut left right hook , compensating his hight .. properly etc ... very good specimen of boxer ... but lack of brain ... ( limited )

Ali knocks out Foreman . Prior Foreman destroyed Frazier and Norton in just a couple rounds total . Yet ali fought 6 tough the distance fights against Frazier and Norton(Frazier didn't come out for final round in Manilla . But when Ali got off his stool and raised his hands in victory he collapsed on the floor) . Just shows you can't compare fighters previous records with same opponents they fought .

I know Holyfield defeating Tyson was a big upset at the time but in retrospect, it’s not really an upset. Holyfield was a great fighter and Tyson was not the same after the Douglas fight and his jail sentence.

Really should show the long count on douglas in the first fight here. Tyson had beaten him but the referee...... well he played a big part. Interestingly he only refereed 4 more fights and all of which were in Mexico. Assuming he retired fairly wealthy.

Danny Williams beat an old, used-up, dissipated Mike Tyson. No one could have seen that outcome as an upset. Klitschko, likewise, was an old man going against Tyson Fury. At his age, it should have come as no surprise to be outpointed by a much younger opponent, even one of the calibre of Fury. Not an upset, there. And where's Braddock taking the title from the heavily favored Max Baer? Or Patterson winning it back from Johansson? Those were genuine upsets. Dempsey wasn't given much of a chance against big Jess Willard. Certainly an upset.

Douglas fought a great fight but he was lucky. He got a long long count & should have been counted out. Mike was on the slide, so many distractions out of the ring. Ref should never have stopped the Holyfield fight... Lewis was a good fighter, loved following & supporting him...the McCall fight was an absolute shocker. What a sucker punch...

Iron Mike Tyson had his days of glory.  Then came along Douglas ,  a no body who became somebody!  Since then,  Tyson started going down hill and lost to others .  People think he was greater than Ali.  NO way.  the real thing that beat Muhammad was his AGE.  Look what he did to Foreman - one of the hardest punchers ,  and Liston who tore apart his foes.  Ali danced ,  came on with combinations that NO one could stop during his time.  Holyfield was a good counter puncher.  After Tyson bit his ear off,  Evangel evened up the score. !  They were all wonderful ,and fans got the best of heavies!

I liked how Ali slowly sucked the energy outta George Foremans heavy punches. Foreman bounced around to much and if he stay more steady and threw more uppercuts like he did in the Frazer fight then Ali would have been floored. But uppercuts are useless if Ali is leaning back fighting off the ropes. They could have added a couple more clips here, like George Foremans brutal win over Ken Norton. Of all the heavyweights in the history of boxing i dont think none of them could have beat Mike Tyson in his prime with his head movement and accurate overpowering left hook. George Foreman in his prime vs Tyson would have been an interesting fight. Tyson vs Ali...nah, i dont like to see Ali getting hurt.

Ridiculous video: Oliver McCall was considered the best boxer outside of the ring but had "stage freight" and froze inside the ring because he couldn't cope with the pressure and all the audience. So him knocking out Lewis on a good day wasn't any "biggest surprise". Then you have Evander Holyfield demolishing Mike Tyson. This was something every boxing fan knew would very well be the outcome even when Tyson was on top; Don King refused to let Tyson fight Holyfield several times as he quote "you'll lose that fight". Which turned out be 100% true.

Forman at the time of Ali had several problems with technique . He was top heavy and always moved or stumbled forward . He depended too much on long punches(opponent can see them coming and often at the end of a lunging long punch it loses its power . And he was not very mature in thought and behavior at that time . His mgr, famous but forgot his name(had a glass eye) didn't train or discipline Forman the correct way . In a rarity for Forman in this era of Ali , I saw a fight he was in a couple fights before ali in zaire . He was balanced, moving forwards, backwards and sideways . And what he used to knockout his opponent were knees bent for leverage and short punches .

Tyson losing to Danny Willams was not exactly a shock or an upset by any means.. I mean Tyson already had his ass whipped several times and was already dog years past his prime at that point

Morrison should have done what Ernie Shavers did mid career . Ernie also had a congenital(born with it) "glass jaw" . I mean even half brain dead Jerry Quarry knocked out Ernie Shavers in the first round . Shavers learned great defensive skills and learned to keep his fists over his lower face and tuck the chin in, and fight in a defensive crouch style . Although Morrison never had the power Shavers had . Ali said Shavers was the hardest puncher he ever fought

One thing that almost nobody ever notices is how well Ali could take a body punch . The one by wepner to the body that knocked ali on his ass was because he caught ali of balance. didn't effect ali at all . but creds to wepner for going 15 rounds but not quite the distance .

Had Tyson fought Douglas in a re-match, he would have killed him. Don King beat Tyson more that night than Douglas ever did. King got his claws on Tyson, and Tyson was ruined. Tyson stays with Rooney, he destroys Marciano's 49-0 record easily.

That fight between Douglas and Tyson was obviously a huge upset, however looking back on it now, it was all about what Douglas did do rather than what Tyson didn't do. The Buster that fought that night in Japan would've probably done what he did against anybody that was put in front of him. He was in outstanding shape and he fought an incredible fight in every way possible (stringing together his punches, avoiding big shots, using his height/reach advantage and threatening from a variety of angles). It wasn't as though Tyson didn't show up in this fight, Douglas simply took it from him.
