    Default Larry Zbyszko on Mike Tyson Fixed Fight?



    Larry the wrestler thinks it was a setup because
    1. It took place in Tokyo- with little promoting- in fact promoting as I understand wasn't even done much in Tokyo where they sold around 30 thousand in a 60 thousand capacity place...how could so many people not want to see the champ, unless it wasnt really promoted? I remember back then, I didnt really see advertising.
    2. There was a sense of predictability- Tyson was going to go to jail & they didnt want that to taint the HW title- HW champ going to jail.


    While it is hard to believe his friend took the photo & was the only one to supposedly hear Tyson yell to Buster (NOW!)


    I do wonder... I just watched the intro to this fight - Ray Leonard claimed this was 1st time Tyson didnt have a big entourage he believed because Mike was focus. Well I think maybe no reason for his boys to see him get dusted (if Larry Zbyszko) is right this was fixed for him to give the belt up before incarceration.


    Plus in their segment on Tyson- Jim Lamply IMO contradicts Ray's claim of a focused tyson by saying he spent quite a few days watching karate movies.
    And what I never knew- was that he was there for a month. How could he have had a month to train and look so lethargic?
    1ts round he continually rushed in, only to do nothing. Not very Tysoneque.


    I've only watched the fight once and from what I remember Tyson got whooped. But If I were to envision the fight being a setup...
    All's lost! Everything's going to shit!

    It was not a fixed fight. Tyson had not been arrested for rape at that time. Tyson did not take the fight seriously and got battered. Buster was on fire that night. Tyson had the fight in Tokyo because he was huge there and it was his 2nd outing. There was no fix.

    This thread should go where it says Hitler survived World War 2.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    Just when I taught I read it all. To think this fight was fixed is beyond moronic. I don't give a fuck what "Larry Zbyszko" says
    The wicked shall die by there own wickedness.

    How many head shots to the naked ring turnbuckle has Zbysko taken. Great heel status clinging. New angle though..at least he didn't use the 'long count'. Mike probably still wishes he would have fought Ruddock in Canada as originally signed. Either way he was unprepared running into Douglas at peak all time performance.

    long count was a doozie as well, but Larry's the ultimate dingy. as with this thread.
