Podcast: Mike Tyson at his explosive best – 35 years on
The Opening Bell podcast looks back on Mike Tyson versus Trevor Berbick, discusses Terence Crawford and looks ahead to the weekend’s action
IT is 35 years since Mike Tyson, then barely 20, confirmed his status as the most fearsome heavyweight in the land when he destroyed Trevor Berbick in two unforgettable rounds. But did Tyson fulfil his potential, and where does he belong in the ranks of all-time greats?
We build up to the examination of Iron Mike by looking back on Terence Crawford’s stoppage of Shawn Porter and the wider discussion of when is it okay to stop a fight?
The performances of Dan Azeez and Richard Riakporhe in the UK, and Demetrius Andrade in the US, are also under review.
Last but not least, a potential firecracker between Stephen Fulton and Brendan Figueroa is previewed alongside Teofimo Lopez’s clash with George Kambosos Jnr.
