Tyson v Ribalta: TKO 10

17 Aug, 1986

Now ranked #1 by the WBA,  in his 26th fight Tyson knocks Ribalta down three times but is taken to the tenth round before securing victory. Early in the 10th, Tyson drops his opponent with a left hook. He then unleashes a flurry of clean hooks to the head that prompt the referee to stop the fight.

He had it in his mind he’d come to fight and I commend him. He fought back. He had the idea he was going to survive. He was hurt pretty bad, but I couldn’t finish him. I was disappointed. I had a bad night.
