Tyson trainer Jay Bright             Ringwalk music: Tupac - Toss it Up

The fight Holyfield vs Tyson should have already taken place in 1990 respectively 1991. The 90 date fell through because the Buster Douglas accident happened and the 91 clash couldn’t take place because Mike hurt his hip during a work-out. Tyson complained that Evander used headbutts which should become an important element in their 2nd clashhame for a former two times heavyweight champion, but when the public saw how confident Evander was the odds went down to 6-1 still in favour of Mike.

Holyfield had Tyson down in the sixth as well as in the tenth. Tyson fought on bravely but in the 11th round referee Mitch Halperin stopped the contest.

Tyson congratulated Holyfield to his victory.

Tyson had underestimated Holyfield, he thought that his would be a short night but when Holyfield did not go down within the first five rounds Tyson ran out of ideas, that simply did not belong to Tyson's fight plan.
