    Tyson upset by unheralded Brit Williams in fourth round

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Mike Tyson was knocked out in the fourth round Friday night in a shocking end to the latest comeback of the fighter who once was the most feared heavyweight of his era.

    Unheralded British heavyweight Danny Williams landed a flurry of punches that sent Tyson sprawling into the ropes, perhaps ending his career with the same kind of fury that Tyson once unleashed on other fighters.

    The fighter once called the baddest man on the planet went down from a final right hand, then laid helplessly along the ropes, blood streaming down his face. He tried to get up to beat the count, then fell down again and the fight was waved to a stunning close at 2:51 of the fourth round.

    The fight was a free-for-all from the opening bell, with Tyson landing some huge left hooks early, only to take punishment himself when Williams got over his initial stage fright and began brawling himself.

    Tyson won the first three rounds, but Williams was landing well to the head and when he began throwing punch after punch with Tyson near a neutral corner, Tyson couldn't answer back.

    Fighting in Muhammad Ali's hometown before a big crowd that cheered his every move, Tyson tried with every punch to score the kind of spectacular knockout that would make him a heavyweight contender once again at the age of 38.

    But Williams wouldn't go down and then came back with shocking suddeness to win.

    It was Tyson's first fight in 17 months, and only his second since taking a beating from former heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis two years ago.

    He was desperately trying to resurrect a career that made him more than $300 million, but the loss to a 9-1 underdog perhaps signals the end of an era in the heavyweight division

    I'm not much of a boxing fan, last non-olympic bout I remember watching was Sugar Ray v. Duran II. But, Iron Mike back in the day..... the dude was a damned animal. He destroyed everything. Quickly.

    What a sad, sad, sad, sad, sad, sad, sad, sad, sad, sad, sad, sad, sad story. This guy was the best fighter since Ali, half robot precision and half animal aggression, demolishing anyone and everyone that ever got in the ring with him. Now, he's squandered his fortune, been jailed for rape, and is reduced to taking circus side-show fights to attract the canival crowd until he has enough brain damage that he requires constant medical supervision. I make no excuses for Tyson, but there is no sport or profession on this earth where people are trained to be glorified animals and get their skulls simultaneously bashed in, and there is no sport or profession in the world where one is completely abandoned when one is used up. It reads like The Jungle: now that Tyson doesn't generate the millions of a payday anymore, they throw him on the scrap heap and watch him wallow away the rest of his life,or don't even watch what happens to his life. Don King has his millions, and if Tyson dies a broke miserable hermit, that's just not his problem. This is why I don't watch boxing anymore.


    Sorry, too much of a rant...but the whole thing makes me physically ill.

    I'm with ya Lion. I grew up a boxing fan because my dad liked it so much.
    Now, I can't even stand to watch a fight. The only ones I may watch are the ones shown on ESPN classic.

    I haven't watch a pro fight in ages, they just don't interest Me at all. I really do like Olympic boxing and I am hoping that NBC actually understands this year that showing something other than Gymnastics would be nice.

    what's sad about it? A dumbass throws his life away. The fucking rapist deserves ten times worse than what he's experienced already.

    I lost all respect that I had for Boxing back when I watched the rematch between Larry Holmes and Michael Spinks. Talk about a fix! Holmes beat his ass like a drum from start to finish, but they gave the decision (and it was a gift) to Spinks. Ever since then, I hardly pay any attention to boxing at all. However, Tyson DOES manage to create interest in the sport. I saw him as he was being counted out...he just gave up and didn't even try to get up IMO. The bully has been bullied!
