Tyson, directed by a referee to a neutral corner after he knocked down Henry Tillman, June 1990. The Las Vegas fight was Tyson's first after losing his title to Buster Douglas that February.

If he could still fight at a high level, Tyson says he would still be in the game: "Because it's like stealing money. It's so easy. When I'm at that level, sometimes it's not even fair." But he says he doesn't miss boxing, "not even a little bit. Because I could never have this [life] if I was boxing. You know?"
