In February of 1990 however, Mike was up to face Buster Douglas, who was a 42-1 underdog. With Buster's 11th round knockout it gave Mike his first lost of his career. This was one of the most controversial, and surprising fights in sports history. Later, after Mike Tyson won his title back in 1995, he was up to fight "The Real Deal" Holyfield, and lost. The rematch between the two was maybe the most talked about boxing match in sports history. While Mike felt that Holyfield, was unfairly head-butting him, he let out his anger and bit a piece of Holyfield's ear off.
