Douglas had lost his mother to a stroke 23 days prior to the fight, and fought the fight of his life. Tyson sent Douglas to the floor in the eighth round,but Douglas recovered sufficiently and in the 10th round sent Tyson to the canvas for the first time in his career. He was counted out by referee Octavio Meyran. After the fight, the Tyson camp complainted that the count was slow and that Douglas had taken longer than ten seconds to get to his feet. Many argued that Tyson Mentally was not prepared for the inspired Douglas and also was reputed to have been out of shape for this fight.
