Old Fights Mike Tyson Conspiracy
I've been watching a lot of old fights on youtube, and I noticed something that I thought would make a nice conspiracy. I've never been a big Mike Tyson fan, but in his fight with Buster Douglas where he took his first loss, when Tyson knocked Buster down in, I can't remember what round maybe 7 or 8, the referee counted ridiculously slow.

Buster was down for easily a 12 count at least. I believe that Mike Tyson should have won that fight. And to make things worse when Buster knocked Tyson down in round 10 the ref counted very fast and if you watch closely Tyson was on his feet by 9, but the ref still stopped the fight.

I think the ref was paid to make sure Tyson lost and the reason could have been because the odds were something like over 40 to 1 in favor of Tyson. Imagine the pay day for someone who bet a lot on Buster........

It was losing this fight that sent Tyson into a downward spiral that led him to take more losses and even the biting incident lol. Imagine what might have happened had he not lost this fight.


Duh Duh Duh, cue the mysterious music.

The quick count was most likely due to the fact tyson had never been down before and the ref was anxious. Seriously tho, use a stop watch, I bet its fairly even.

Tyson threw the fight. Douglas almost lost even as Tyson pulled punches.

Tyson came out with his 20 million guarantee and 30 million on wagers.

50 million payday.

Re: Old Fights Mike Tyson Conspiracy
Interesting idea that Tyson threw the fight. He did seem to start them fight with very little tenacity compared to his other fights.

If he did get 30 million from wagers its a shame I think he blew that money too hahaha.

Re: Old Fights Mike Tyson Conspiracy
I watched that fight live on HBO when I was a kid. I remember running into the living room, screaming at my parent “MIKE TYSON IS KNOCKED DOWN!!!!” Notice I didn’t scream that he lost the fight or got a TKO .... NOBODY had ever seen him get knocked down.

When I ran back into the room, the fight was over. I was shocked. At no time did I think Tyson wouldn’t get back up, which is why I left the room the begin with to tell my parents.

Buster Douglas’s mother had passed away before the fight. Tyson was complacent. Tyson might be a lot of things, but I don’t think he would of thrown ANY fight.
Confession: I am a DNC shill.

If Tyson didn't throw the fight I think the ref was in on it. I'm fairly certain Tyson Knocked out Buster when Buster went down....

wasn't he undefeated to that point?
"Do you believe in an afterlife?" the gunslinger asked him as Brown dropped three ears of hot corn onto his plate.

Brown nodded. "I think this is it."
