Douglas v Tyson: KO 10

James ‘Buster’ Douglas stuns the world as he beats Tyson to become the new Undisputed Heavyweight Champion of the World.  Fighting for the second time in Tokyo, Japan, Tyson, in his 38th fight, appears under-prepared amid rumors of a less than vigorous training regime ahead of this fight.  The 42-1 underdog from Columbus, Ohio controls the fight from the outset and, in the tenth round, unleashes brutal shots on Tyson’s jaw with Tyson ending the fight on his knees desperately trying to replace his gumshield. Tyson loses his titles and moves to 37-1.
