And when you get hit you shake it off and act like it didn't hurt even though your knees buckled.


- truth be told if I were hit in face today, even by you, I’d probably cry - 😭

James "Buster" Douglas (born April 7, 1960) is an American former professional boxer who competed between 1981 and 1999. He reigned as undisputed world heavyweight champion in 1990 after defeating Mike Tyson to win the title.[1] His victory over Tyson is regarded as one of the greatest upsets in sports history.

Douglas was a 42-to-1 underdog going into his 1990 fight against Tyson, who was undefeated and considered to be the best boxer in the world for his domination of the division over the previous three years. Defying expectations, Douglas knocked out Tyson in the 10th round to claim the WBC, WBA, and IBF titles.

 

Made a couple bucks that night!  :)  Amazing fight.

Right HERE is the back story to the Douglas/Tyson fight and WHY Buster fought like he did.  John Johnson was his manager and the first one to hug him after the fight.  Yup, John grew-up here and went to school with me back in the day.  So the video is why Iron Mike got his whuppin.

booster vac shots for pfizer and/or moderna....what about J&J/Jannsen? Did that vaccine fall into disfavor? Curious, because that is what I got.

J&J was a one shot only vaccine.   Dont know about the other.

When I got my J&J shot in early May I inquired about a booster. The guy giving the vaccination said he believed the annual flu shot will incorporate C-19 boosters. Don't know if he was a doctor or just a pharmacist. Knows more than I do regardless.
