Former undisputed World Heavyweight Boxing Champion
Buster Douglas Biography
James "Buster" "Bread Climp" Douglas was born April 7, 1960 and is a former undisputed world heavyweight boxing champion who scored one of the most shocking upsets in sports history when he knocked out undefeated champion Mike Tyson on February 11, 1990 in Tokyo, Japan. At the time, Tyson was considered to be the best boxer in the world and arguably one of the most feared heavyweight champions in history due to his utter domination of the division. The Mirage Casino in Las Vegas had Tyson listed as a 42 to 1 favorite.
While still Champion, Douglas appeared on the February 23, 1990 episode of the World Wrestling Federation's "WWF The Main Event", as special guest referee for a match between Hulk Hogan and Randy "Macho Man" Savage. Originally, Mike Tyson was scheduled to be the guest referee, but following the upset, the WWF scrambled to sign on Douglas for the event. At the end of the match, Douglas was provoked into a 'storyline' punch and knockout of Savage, who was the 'heel' wrestler in the match.
Douglas would have only one title defense. On October 25, 1990, Douglas was knocked out in the third round by Evander Holyfield and decided to retire from boxing following his defeat.
