Tyson v Tubbs: TKO 2

21 Mar, 1988

Tyson fights his 34th fight outside the United States for the first time as he puts his title on the line against Tony Tubbs in Tokyo, Japan.  Tyson destroys an out of shape Tubbs in two short rounds.

I did what I was supposed to do to a guy supposedly out of shape. I got rid of him quick. If he had lasted six or seven rounds, I could have been criticized. It’s his prerogative to come into the ring the way he wants. He didn’t come out like a guy who just came to pick up a paycheck, he came out to fight. He got hit with solid shot.
