Summary:
"How big of an upset was James "Buster" Douglas knocking out Mike Tyson for the heavyweight title? Forget Tyson's 37-0 record. Forget his 33 knockouts, many in less than a round and in devastating fashion. Consider this: After Las Vegas posted odds of 42-1, betting was still so strong on Tyson that many sports books wouldn't accept bets on the fight."

   schema:description ""John Johnson pairs with Bill Long now to tell the inside story of the bout and how Douglas stunned the world one afternoon in Tokyo. Johnson looks back at how he and Douglas started working together, goes over the ups and downs of Buster's boxing career, and discusses the lead-up and preparation for the famous fight. Johnson and Long talk with folks from Tyson's corner to get their side of things and with ringside observers to get their memories as well. Finally, Johnson reminisces about the post-fight euphoria and discusses the fallout of the fight and why Douglas lost in his first and only title defense."--Jacket."@en ;
