The World Heavyweight champ poses with his belts.
Photograph inscribed and signed: "John/Buster Douglas/Love [smiling face] Peace". Color, 8½x11 overall, image 8x9½ (one surface). Name imprinted at lower margin. James "Buster" Douglas (born in 1960) knocked out Mike Tyson for the World Heavyweight title in the tenth round of their February 11, 1990 match up in Tokyo, Japan. At that time, Tyson was considered the best fighter in boxing and odds-makers had him as a 42-1 favorite to beat Douglas, who was the first to floor the champ. The shocking result was headlined "Rocky Lives!" on the cover of "Sports Illustrated" magazine. Douglas' reign as Undisputed World Heavyweight champ (WBA, WBC, IBF) was short-lived, however; on October 25, 1990, he was knocked out in the third round by Evander Holyfield. Douglas had fought in only one other championship bout, losing to Tony Tucker for the vacant IBF Championship in 1987. His last fight was against Andre Crowder on February 19, 1999, when Douglas won by a TKO. Slightly creased at upper margin. Minor surface smudges (not evident head on). Fine condition.
