What went wrong mates?
>James “Buster” Douglas: “Once I signed to fight him I knew that I could beat him. And then, of course, it intensified as my mom passed and prior to my mother passing, she came over and checked on me – because I was going through a lot in my life – at the time my wife and I were separated – and it was just really bad outside of my boxing career. And then I was really adamant about it with my mom. And she was like, Oh, you’re so mean. From that point on she was confident I was prepared to fight. It was a trying time but through the grace of God I made it through all the things I was going through. There I was preparing for one of the biggest nights of my life, and then all the things in my life were going bad. But I still stayed focused and was able to lean on boxing to bring me through that, that storm. It was really a difficult time in my life, but boxing helped me make it through it because it took my mind off it, you know, my personal life. So, therefore, he (Tyson) was the least of my worries.”
This really is a good example of how your personal life outside the ring actually matters in Boxing and how shit could go threw your head
Buster's personal life was just too fucking hard that Tyson is literally his least priority and nothing could really go downhill from there
Tyson's personal life was just too fucking good with the non-stop orgies that Buster was the least of his worries. - He had everything to lose
It was a good fight anons
