Remember reading about his training in Tokyo, he said he only worked out on local geisha (whenever the wife was out shopping) and did no real training.  Even remember seeing the footage of him dropped in sparring not long before the fight too.  He was still unlucky in that fight in that Douglas got some amount of time to get up after his knockdown in the round before the fight ended.

Didn't Don King go on a mad rant after declaring Tyson the real winner over the knockdown?

Think there was an official appeal lodged that delayed (by 2/3 days) Douglas being immediately declared the official recognised champion.

King tried to have decision overturned. Douglas was knocked down in the 8th round and the KO was in the 10th. Tyson's live was a mess by that stage. D'Amato and Jim Jacobs were dead, and King did his thing where he infected anything he touched and got Tyson to push out Bill Cayton as manager and Kevin Rooney as trainer. His corner for the fight didn't have an endswell ffs.

Congrats to Fearghus Quinn from Belleeks Co Armagh. I know his sister very well, certainly has dedicated every part of his life to boxing and now has the fantastic opportunity of fighting under MTK along side the fury, Frampton, conlons of the boxing world

Is that the lad that fought Donnelly in the Irish finals a year or two ago and was robbed?

He can look forward to getting paid with lots of MTK drug money now like the rest of them.

The very one.

He looked good but dont know if he will be a heavy enough puncher at the higher level - fingers crossed another local boxer can go far.

Will have the opportunity to get on some good cards with them anyway if he gets a few wins
