Ironically, the judge who scores the bout even is Britain’s own Larry O’Connell. An immediate rematch is ordered for November and Lewis takes the undisputed heavyweight title with a unanimous decision.
Tyson’s reputation sinks further after his antics during the Botha fight. He admits trying to break Botha’s arm during a clinch and appears to have learnt nothing from his disqualification at the hands of Holyfield.
He is then sentenced to another jail term for assaulting motorists in 1998. Released in the summer, he returns to more controversy when he knocks out Orlin Norris after the bell. The fight is ruled a no-contest.
