Meticulously researched, wonderfully written, this remarkable book dramatically recounts the untold story of a legendary boxing match and two warriors who would never be the same again. The date was 11 February 1990, and in what many consider to be the biggest upset in the history of boxing, James 'Buster' Douglas knocked out the then undefeated Heavyweight Champion Mike Tyson in the tenth round, at a time when the dominating and intimidating Tyson was deemed invincible. The "Last Great Fight" takes readers not only behind the scenes of this epic battle, but inside the lives of the two men; their ambitions, their dreams, the downfall of one and the rise of the other. Using his exclusive interviews with both Tyson and Douglas, family members, the referee, the cutmen, trainers and managers, commentators and HBO staff covering the fight in Tokyo, Layden has crafted a human drama played out on a large stage. The result is a compelling and classic account of shattered dreams and, ultimately, redemption. Joe Layden is an award-winning author and former journalist who regularly covered professional boxing during the height of Mike Tyson's championship reign. He lives in upstate New York.
