Douglas provided one of the biggest boxing upsets ever upsets by knocking out Tyson, who partied with two dozen girls just days before the fight
Talented singer Bobby Brown has revealed he and Mike Tyson partied with two dozen girls before the boxing legend’s shock loss to Buster Douglas.
Douglas was a 42-1 underdog against then-unbeaten heavyweight champion Tyson. Fans considered Douglas as a warm-up fight for Tyson as he prepared to fight his soon-to-be rival Evander Holyfield, but it proved to be anything but.
Tyson’s left eye was visibly swollen by the eighth round of the fight, as he floored Douglas for the first time in the bout with a trademark uppercut. Douglas refused to give up and knocked Tyson down with a flurry in the 10th round, leaving him unable to beat the count.
The fight is regarded as one of the biggest upsets in boxing history. Tyson’s longtime friend Brown has now revealed that he partied “really hard” with ‘Iron Mike’ in the lead up to the historic title fight.

“We used to do crazy sh**,” Brown said in an interview for the A and E documentary. “Me and Mike Tyson are friends to this day, but there was a time when we partied in Japan right before his fight with Buster Douglas. We partied like really, really, really hard.
“There must have been two dozen girls in the room with me and Mike, we partied. I was trying to tell him to get some sleep.” Brown then joked: “Eventually he got some sleep [in the ring]! Do not put that part in there please, he is going to kill me.”
