Boxing – 1990 – HBOs Jim Lampley Tells The Sorty Of A Kinder And Softer Mike Tyson After 1st Loss

Jim Lampley and Sugar Ray Leonard of HBO Boxing provide a special feature about the Mike Tyson that appears after he lost his title to Buster Douglas….as a “kinder and gentler” Mike Tyson…who takes some personal time to be introspective while traveling back to the home of Cuz D’Amato in the Catskills, New York….where he grew up being mentored in boxing and in life by his trainer and surrogate father. 

The piece points out how Tyson would spend reclusive time in his home in Las Vegas….along with time at Cus’ home in the Catskills…..while only getting out of the house for a couple of hours a day….which would be time spent at the gym.  This inside look into Mike Tyson’s life between the time he lost his title to Buster Douglas….and up until his subsequent next fight with Henry Tillman in Vegas…..and how he dealt with the unexpected death of his 25 year old sister. 

This video provides a look inside of the soul of Mike Tyson….as boxing fans get to see the “thought provoking side” of this heavyweight boxing legend….as it provides significant evidence into what a “stand up guy” that he really was….as he took all the blame for anything that went bad or good in his life.
