Mike Tyson was in the twilight stage of his career at this stage. Tyson was in need of a big win here to prove he was still relevant in the heavyweight division. following two back-to-back defeats against Evander Holyfield, the obituaries for his career were already being written again.

Botha easily controlled the early goings in this bout. You could make an argument he had taken the first four rounds on the scorecards, furthermore, Tyson had looked wild and reckless all fight.

Many had thought by the time the fifth round came along, Tyson was headed to a decision loss. Tyson’s frustration had begun to spill over and he was venting by attempting to break Botha’s arm in the clinch at the end of the first round.

With this knockout, Tyson showed he was still a major player in the heavyweight division, beating a man who had beaten the former world champion, Michael Moorer.
