Yep, it was 20 years ago in Tokyo where Ohio’s own James “Buster” Douglas took down Mike Tyson. The upset happened after a poorly-trained Mike Tyson entered the ring to face a man who had just lost his mother three weeks earlier, and while Tyson managed to knock down Douglas in the eighth, it was Douglas who stopped the champ in the tenth. Most of us remember seeing Tyson’s mouthpiece pop out of his mouth as his body fell to the Japanese canvas. But hey, Tyson was in The Hangover, so it’s not like his career and life went into any sort of freefall after he lost the title. No, not at all.
