Partially agree. I had Floyd losing wide to Castillo and had DLH beating him by a point (from ringside). I had Floyd beating Maidana by a couple points.

Atlas: “I believe to my core that Douglas’ mother dying is why was why he was strong when he was never mentally strong before. He was everything he thought he could be because he couldn’t be hurt by Tyson as much as he was hurt by the death of his mother.”

Atlas: “I always said that when someone stands up to this guy, his flaws, his shortcomings, his lack of character will show.”

Just got off the phone with Teddy Atlas. Asked him about . “Somebody asked me to take them to the airport that night. I did. I asked at the toll booth who won the fight. They said: ‘Unbelievable! Douglas won!’ I should’ve told the guy to take a cab.”

Bobby Chacon participated in two fights of the year within five months of one another - nine months after wife Valorie committed suicide because he wouldn’t retire. Amazing.

On the undercard, Thomas Hearns returns less than three months after his crushing, classic 14th-round TKO loss to Sugar Ray Leonard. Takes 10-rounder over middleweight Ernie Singletary.

Yes. A good boxer who would be nowhere as rich, popular or esteemed as he is without the profound amount of help he’s received. From promoters, judges and sponsors.

Mayweather retired with 1 L on his record and people still bring up Castillo. Why should this be any different?

💯. THIS Buster Douglas could’ve been great.

Buster won 8 of 9 rounds before flattening Mike in 10th. That was no aberration. Tyson had trouble with tall boxers with good jabs who could box. Namely Tillis, Green and Tucker. Buster’s jab compared to Liston’s. Styles make fights. This version of Douglas was Tyson’s kryptonite

For the first time in an unpredictable career, he used all of his considerable physical gifts to win the most important title in boxing, score the biggest upset in sports history and become a multi-millionaire on the world stage. So I’d say, yeah.
