Mike Tyson Vs Orlin Norris 1999



Tyson trainer: Tommy Brooks Another comeback fight for Tyson – after the Botha bout Mike had been sentenced to a one year prison due to a fight during his probation (Tyson had a car collision with some motor-cyclists and he beat them). Tyson served 4 months and returned to the ring 9 months after the Botha bout took place.T his fight ended in a no-contest.

Orlin Norris- a solid experienced fighter and former WBA cruiserweight champion.
Norris entered the ring with a record of 50-5 and 1 no-contest . At the end of the first round Mike hit Norris with a left hook after the bell rang. Norris went down and fell so unlucky that he apparently hurt his knee. Even Evander Holyfield backed Tyson by saying that the crowd is so loud that it’s difficult to hear the bell. Norris didnt carry on.
The fight was to be a no decison and so a dispaointing evening for Mike.
Norris went to his corner without any problems, he must have hurt his knee when he sat on his chair…-Tyson
It was an easy way for Norris to get out of the fight. He got his purse and was not (officially)beaten by Tyson. Recently Norris fought Vitali Klitschko and quit after about 100 seconds in round one , he went down after a ridiculous punch waited for the referee to count him out got up and that was is it. A disgrace to himself and boxing.
