However on fight night, the stark realisation dawned on Biggs that he was stepping in the ring with one of the most ferocious fighters of all time and he was gradually and painfully broken down. Tyson’s most dangerous weapon besides the art of intimidation was that he possessed a left hook from hell and he landed it at will from all angles and for 6 rounds he was pummelled at will until at least the pain started proving too much. The fight reached its all too inevitable conclusion at 2:59 of the seventh round when yet another Tyson left hook sent Biggs spiralling towards his corner, where his body thudded towards the canvas as his feet were pointed skywards. Tyson’s body was hanging over the top strand of rope and he cut an imposing figure standing over a beaten Biggs in what has become an iconic image. This was the undefeated Tyson’s 32nd professional victory and furthermore the 28th kayo of his professional career, this was also the first professional defeat of Biggs’ career.

The fight reached its all too inevitable conclusion at 2:59 of the seventh round when yet another Tyson left hook sent Biggs spiralling towards his corner, where his body thudded towards the canvas as his feet were pointed skywards. Tyson’s body was hanging over the top strand of rope and he cut an imposing figure standing over a beaten Biggs in what has become an iconic image. This was the undefeated Tyson’s 32nd professional victory and furthermore the 28th kayo of his professional career, this was also the first professional defeat of Biggs’ career.

During the fight’s opening round, Biggs did what Larry Merchant and Angelo Dundee had suggested he’d do and he was keeping Tyson at bay, popping a sharp jab while taking what was coming back with seeming ease. But Tyson was relentless with his pressure and that told the tale as Biggs’ legs were taken from underneath him as Tyson exhibited a brutal showing of precise power punching, scoring at will to the body and head while displaying phenomenal punch selection as he found particular success with his left jab and quick short chopping right hands landing cleanly multiple time just like the aforementioned left hook.

Biggs absorbed all the blows as he bravely soldiered on despite a deep cut over his right eye which opened in the third round and had progressively worsened more and more. It just wasn’t to be for Biggs as he continued to fail to halt the onslaught but with the damage, he had incurred just couldn’t keep the pace against his 21-year-old opponent.

Tyson savagely delivered his post-fight comments about Biggs in a similar fashion to how he delivered the knockout. He was doing so much talking that I wanted to make him pay with his health. I don’t want to sound egotistical, but I could have knocked him out in the third round. I wanted to do it slowly. I wanted him to remember this for a long time;” Tyson concluded.
