Haven't seen that many haymakers since the first cutting at the Weaver Farm in aught 6!

The circus show aside, Tyson was the most compact powerful puncher I've ever seen. Too bad he went loco.

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.
