Canelo is gassed but Jacobs isnt trying to win so it won't matter
M490, I watched the ESPN60 story, 42to1, the other day. Great watch with a ton of Tyson highlights and the story of how Douglas came to fight the fight of his life. I put the timer to the Douglas knockdown in the eighth and twice timed him as being down for a full 13 seconds. Would have been interesting to see prime Holyfield-Tyson as was planned, had Tyson won that fight.
Maybe so, he was shaken fersure. Had the round not ended when he got up, I think Tyson would have finished him.I havent watched in a long time but what I remember is that Douglas could have beat a legit count. He was going off the ref.
42to1 was Douglas-Tyson. Only one bookie was taking bets and that was his line. There was recently a documentary on Douglas by the same name, 42to1. Some great footage of he and Tyson. While it shouldn’t surprise me that he expected to win, hearing his story in full was enjoyable. His dad...whoa, hard fella.I think.
D'you think it's a smart move on the part of his team to have some fights in the US before the Wilder rematch? To me it seems like it lessens the burden of having to come to Wilder's 'backyard' to take the title; moreover since he's unlikely to KO Wilder and will have to outbox him and get the decision.Ha no death in the ring for Fury. Man is he impressive.
