Tyson v Ferguson: W DSQ 6

16 Feb, 1986

Tyson experiences his longest fight to date in Troy, NY, as Ferguson spends the majority of the fight with his back to the ropes and employs a variety of spoiler tactics. Tyson breaks his opponents nose and puts him on the canvas in Round 5 before the referee calls an end to proceedings in the 6th.

I never get frustrated, because I know we have a ten-round limit and the crop of heavyweights nowadays have a little difficulty going the full ten rounds. They way they have it planned in their mind to beat me is to jab, pot shot, and grab me, but it’s ten rounds and eventually I’m going to catch them.
