    I think it was the last few years of Tyson's career.

    What you talking bout, the rematch. Cause the first fight was a murder. He whooped Rocky so bad, that his trainer died from embrassment.

    Ali-Spinks. But I'm not sure what TS is holding as number 1. Cuz Ali-Spinks is pretty much a lock for #1. My second in that case would prolly be Tyson-Douglas, but I remember alot of folks were down on Iron Mike before that fight because he seemingly wasn't training at all.

    Oliver McCall knocking out Lennox Lewis is bigger than Rahman and just as big (if not bigger) than Tyson/Douglas, IMO...

    I remember him being in the Locker room but I don't remember rocky lying to him, guess I have to rewatch it.

    Hell yeah I would want a blood test of him and that big ass russian dude.

    Hard to envision now, but Ali v. Foreman was a colossal upset.

    Barrera Hamed was a big upset. Same with Barrera and Pacman I.

    Mind you, both were unknowns at the time going against big stars. Kinda hard to compare to people who went on to do nothing.

    Vlad Vs. Sanders was a big upset as well.
