Emmanuel Stewart said before the fight that Tyson had no business in the ring that night aside from money. First fight, at the time of the stoppage, was realistically a 7-3 or even 8-2 fight with a 10-8 round. Tyson was comprehensively beaten at both close and long range. He wasn’t winning a rematch without more time for serious physical adjustments even if his head was in the game. Don King cashed him out.

Good thing Mike only shoved him when he walked towards Evander while his back was turned to him. That's probably the only good decision he made in the ring that night.

Teddy Atlas said before he knew Tyson was going to get himself disqualified. I find that credible not only due to the gun incident but because getting rid of the referee Mitch Halpern from the first on purpose was part of a strategy that wasn’t able to materialize.

Tyson got frustrated from the constant head butting. That and he realized Holyfield was going to be hard to beat on a good night.

That was more a clash of styles that deliberate on either fighter’s part.

Ask Rahman about Holyfield's head butting. It was well known. All that aside Tyson had a horrible gameplan. Hardly threw any combinations.

Holyfield is arguably the dirtiest fighter of all times, and his head butts were a big part of his arsenal. He head butted Tyson repeatedly in this fight, busting him open. And the Referee didn't do anything to stop it. Eventually Tyson got pissed off and the rest is history, but its not like Holyfield didn't head butt him repeatedly leading up to the bite.

They butted each other repeatedly. It is clear in the video that Tyson came in head first on the butt that cut him. He was frustrated because he knew he was going to take another assswhoppen!

Bullshit. Holyfield was notorious for butting.


Polk14

You haven't watched the fight? It was clear as day. They show it in slow mo multiple times on multiple angles. Mike Tyson led with his head in the butt that cut him. I suggest you go watch it.

Teddy is full of shit. Always has been.


Tomalumpa

Except in this case he called it before the fight on tv. This is not Teddy making up stuff after the fact.
