    The local station is a huge SF Giants baseball affiliate and during baseball season it's like I've been listening to the same station for the last 10 years. Giants win and they look like world series contenders, they lose and they need to make some moves cuz the team doesn't have it this year, meanwhile it's May.

    I remember waking up the following morning and seeing the Sports section headline in the LA Times. It was an action shot of Douglas and Tyson, with Tyson falling sideways. IIRC it read: "Tyson Era Goes Buster."

    I didn't see the fight, of course. We didn't have cable, and even if we did, my dad was far too cheap to subscribe to any PPV.

    Quick research confirms your memory of headline.

    Give credit to Tyson’s trainer admitting he didn’t bring the steel eye sweller thinking it’d be such a quick fight. Instead, he had to use a glove and put water and ice in it. Can’t blame him for being overconfident.

    Douglas wasn’t just a Joe Schmo though. He did beat Oliver McCall just a year earlier. McCall went on to be a world champ and did beat Lennox Lewis once.

    Every time there's a boxing conversation that goes beyond the big names, this is all I can think of:
