Mike Tyson vs. Larry Sims – Does This Fight Footage Exist

MessageAuthor
Posted: Thu Nov 08, 2007 8:29 pm   Does anyone have or has anyone seen VIDEO! footage of Mike Tyson vs. Larry Sims, this was Tyson’s 6th pro fight and I cant find it at all so I’m starting to think that it wasn’t recorded, I have two Tyson collections – a 12 disc one & an 8 disc one, both are missing 2 fights “Larry Sims” & “Conroy Nelson”, I’m currently downloading the Conroy Nelson fight but I don’t know if this footage exists ?, will find out soon. the 8 disc collection from www.mike-tyson.info claimed to have the Conroy Nelson Fight but it doesn’t. (I hate when FIGHTER collections are called full careers, if 1 or more fights is missing then it is not a full career!)

(Question in short)
does footage of Tyson vs. Larry Sims exist ?

also does anyone have the 26 dvd collection from www.tysoncollection.com it claims to have the Conroy Nelson Fight as well

Posted: Thu Nov 08, 2007 9:17 pm   just had a look at the Tyson vs. Conroy Nelson download (poor picture Q and I think it’s russian commentary), I have seen this fight before and I think that I even have this fight somewhere with better pic Q. shame about the Sims fight it would have completed the career but it’s hard to believe that there is no footage of this fight when there is so much footage of Tyson as an amature and even as a 15 year old training in the gym with Cus & Teddy but if it isn’t even on TV e.g. ESPN Classic then I don’t think it exists.  swboxing

This is the closest thing you’ll ever see from the Sims fight

Looks like a typical early Tyson beat down. His victim scared *Censor*, Tyson goes in for the kill and it’s over.
