Today is 24th anniversary of Buster Douglas’ 10th-round knockout of Mike Tyson

It was 24 years ago today – Feb. 11, 1990 – that James “Buster” Douglas absolutely shocked the world when he knocked out Mike Tyson in the 10th round in Tokyo, Japan.

Tyson was a 42-to-1 betting favorite, but a terrific jab by the taller and longer Douglas set the table for Douglas to come up with what today is still considered by many to be the biggest upset in a major fight in history.
