Tyson Gegen Holyfield Tysons Zukunft: Was nach dem Kampf geplant ist VideoMike Tyson vs Evander Holyfield - II
A capacity crowd assembled at the MGM Grand to witness the expected execution. Here came the next knockout; the only question was how dramatic and violent it would be.
When the bell rang and Tyson landed a right hand that sent Holyfield skittering across the ring, it looked like the fight might be over in the opening minute.
This was the last thing anyone expected, including the defending champion. And at that moment, the outcome was decided; Tyson did not know how to deal with an opponent who refused to follow the familiar script.
It was actually a one-sided fight, Tyson winning few exchanges. The only round that clearly belonged to him was the fifth when he finally landed some clean blows, including his trademark left hook-left uppercut combination, which momentarily discouraged the challenger.
But Evander had already established the dominant pattern of the fight: pushing Tyson back in the many clinches, bullying the bully, and immediately countering with hard shots on the rare occasions the champion launched an effective attack.
In the sixth Tyson sustained a cut, was stunned by a right hand, and then suffered a knockdown. A thudding right in round ten was the beginning of the end.
The referee officiating the fight was Mills Lane , who was brought in as a late replacement when Tyson's camp protested the original selection of Mitch Halpern who officiated the first fight as the referee.
Tyson and Holyfield fought seven months earlier in Las Vegas. Tyson was making his first defense of the WBA championship he had won from Bruce Seldon in a first-round knockout.
Holyfield, despite being a former champion, was a significant underdog entering the match as he had been rather lackluster in several fights since he returned to fighting in after a brief retirement.
However, Holyfield surprised Tyson by controlling the contest and knocked him down in the sixth round. Halpern stopped the fight in the eleventh round, giving Holyfield an upset victory.
The fight began with Holyfield dominating Tyson. Holyfield won the first three rounds. At of the first round, an overhand right from Holyfield stunned Tyson, but Tyson fought back immediately pushing Holyfield backwards.
At 32 seconds into the second round, Holyfield ducked under a right from Tyson. In doing so, he head-butted Tyson, opening a large cut over the latter's right eye although trainer Ritchie Giachetti believed the cut happened in the first round.
Tyson had repeatedly complained about head-butting in the first bout between the two fighters. Upon reviewing replays, referee Mills Lane stated the headbutts were unintentional and nonpunishable.
As the third round was about to begin, Tyson came out of his corner without his mouthpiece. Lane ordered Tyson back to his corner to insert it.
Tyson inserted his mouthpiece, got back into position and the match resumed. Tyson began the third round with a furious attack.
With forty seconds remaining in the round, Holyfield got Tyson in a clinch, and Tyson rolled his head above Holyfield's shoulder and bit Holyfield on his right ear.
The bite avulsed a one-inch piece of cartilage from the top of the ear, and Tyson spat out the piece of ear onto the ring floor.
As Holyfield turned to walk to his corner, Tyson shoved him from behind. Lane sent Tyson to a neutral corner as an enraged Holyfield gestured for Mills Lane to look at his bitten ear, which was bleeding profusely.
The fight was delayed for several minutes as Lane debated what to do. Lane's original decision was to immediately disqualify Tyson, but after the ringside doctor determined that Holyfield was able to continue despite the massive bite, Lane announced he would be deducting two points from Tyson and the fight would continue.
During another clinch, Tyson bit Holyfield's left ear. Holyfield threw his hands around to get out of the clinch and jumped back.
Tyson's second bite just scarred Holyfield's ear. Lane did not stop the fight this time, so the two men continued fighting until time expired.
The men walked back to their respective corners, and when the second bite was discovered, the fight was stopped.
In the second, Holyfield drove Tyson into the ropes and stung him with a hard combination, and his strategy for the match became clear.
As Tyson mainly threw one punch at a time, Holyfield blocked the first attack, then used his strength to clinch, and shove Tyson backwards.
Keeping Tyson on the back foot minimized his power and affected his balance, and gave Holyfield the opportunity to come forward and score with combinations to the head.
As the rounds passed, Tyson was unable to adjust, and found himself being thoroughly outboxed. In the fifth round, Tyson landed a fierce combination, his best of the match, and Holyfield did not stagger.
In the sixth, a headbutt from Holyfield judged accidental by Halpern opened a cut over Tyson's left eye, and Tyson also suffered a knockdown, as Holyfield caught him with a left hook to the chest as Tyson rushed in.
Holyfield continued parrying Tyson's charges and catching him with punches to the head. With 15 seconds left in the seventh round, Tyson lunged at Holyfield as Holyfield came forward, resulting in a hard clash of heads.
Tyson cried out in pain and his knees buckled, but again the referee judged the headbutt to be unintentional. Tyson was examined by the ring doctor, and tied Holyfield up for the rest of the round.
During the next two rounds, Tyson continued missing wild punches and absorbing counterpunches from Holyfield. At the end of the tenth round, a punch from Holyfield sent Tyson staggering across the ring.
Holyfield chased him into the ropes and landed a series of devastating blows. By the sound of the bell, Tyson was out on his feet and defenseless, but his corner allowed him out for the eleventh.
