Buster Douglas v Mike Tyson print from Canvas Art Rocks, featuring one of the most sensational boxing fights in living memory on 11th February 1990 in Tokyo, Japan.
Going into the fight Mike Tyson was the reigning undefeated and undisputed heavyweight champion and held the WBC, WBA and IBF titles. However, that did not deter Douglas who was a massive underdog and who many perceived to be just a warm-up for Tyson's anticipated fight later that same year against Evander Holyfield. From the start it was clear that Douglas was not afraid of Tyson and he came out all guns blazing. By the tenth round, all that Tyson had thrown at Douglas had been in vain and Tyson's defences had gone. Douglas caught him with a massive uppercut and then rained blows at Tyson's head, knocking the champion down and out. An enduring image of the knockdown was that of Tyson scrabbling on the floor and putting his gumshield back in, but he was so dazed he couldn't put it in properly.
