Re: Hagler vs Hearns 1st round
Tyson was special. Fast and insanely powerful. Has D'Amato lived, I honestly believe that we would be putting Tyson in the Ali class. Cus was the only person who ever cared about Mike as a person, not a meal ticket. After Cus died, Tyson was still OK with Teddy Atlas, then after that, the wheels came off, both personally and in the ring. Instead of the bob and weave, high pressure attack he used under D'Amato, he spent most of the fight looking for the one punch KO. He usually found it, but he got exposed, and Douglas finally caught him on the off night every fighter has. The Douglas fight doesn't go like that if Cus or Atlas were training Tyson.
We’re not going to apologize for caring. We’re not.
