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 crafts a human drama played out on a large stage. The result in a compelling and classic account of shattered dreams and ultimately, redemption. Meticulously researched and 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. His case, made eloquently and expertly, is that Tyson, and heavy-weight boxing, were never the same again. It was certainly the last great upset, and it has found a worthy chronicler' Independent on Sunday Joe Layden is an award-winning author and fromer journalist who regularly covered professional boxing during the height of Mike Tyson's championship reign. He lives in upstate New York.
