Years ago exactly on this day…


Published: November 22, 2005

22 November. Today exactly 19 years ago Mike Tyson became the youngest Heavyweight
Champion of the world by a brutal win over Trevor Berbick. With before
unseen power and viciousness in a title-fight young Mike Tyson won his first
and personally one of his most important title. By winning the WBC
belt he payed homage to his late mentor Cus D’Amato proving the belief of
his mentor was not misplaced,..that he not only could be the next
heavyweight champion of the world,…but also the youngest heayyweight
champion of the world. A record not broken since then and established for a
long time to come (most possibly forever). By winning the WBC belt Mike also started the unification
series; an amazing, unique and bold effort only few great champions ever could accomplish.
Today 19 years ago Mike Tysons rule of his first era began and he did it in
style no one else has ever done since.
Today 19 years ago the whole world saw the phenomenal called Mike Tyson, the whole world was stunned by the talent, force and power displayed by him and the whole world
since then has not forgotten this day.

Feel free to relive this memorable moment togehter with many fellow Tyson
fans by watching the full Tyson-Berbick fight (from the Download Fights-section).
