Boxing – 1986 – HBO Post Fight – 10 Rnd Heavyweight Bout – Iron Mike Tyson VS Jose Ribalta


This 1986 HBO Post Fight coverage of the 10-round heavyweight bout between Iron Mike Tyson and Jose Ribalta….featured interviews with both fighters….along with the outstanding HBO Boxing commentary team of Barry Tompkins, Sugar Ray Leonard and Larry Merchant….who handled both pre-fight and post-fight shows as good as any to ever cover the wonderful art of boxing. 

This fight between Mike Tyson vs Jose Ribalta had been a really good fight….with Ribalta holding his own quite well throughout the fight….and the interviews with both fighters bear this out…..and since Iron Mike would go on to become one of our seven heavyweight boxing legends during the Golden Age of Boxing from 1964 – 1995….along with Muhammad Ali, Smokin’ Joe Frazier, Big George Foreman, Larry The Easton Assassin Holmes, Evander The Real Deal Holyfield and Lennox Lewis….which makes every piece of vintage video that ImaSportsphile has in our boxing library is just another “nugget of gold” in our video museum of memories….for they all are well worth watching…including this one.
