Singer Bobby Brown has disclosed that Mike Tyson lost his ever bout against Buster Douglas because of a two-day party with 24 women before the fight.
Going into the fight, Tyson was the undefeated and undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, holding the WBC, WBA, and IBF titles.
Most considered this fight to be a warm-up bout for Tyson before meeting up with then-undefeated number 1 heavyweight contender Evander Holyfield.
However, Douglas won with a 10th round knockout and ‘Iron Mike’ had to wait up to six years to regain the WBC heavyweight title in a fight against Frank Bruno.
Tyson’s loss to Douglas came as a surprise, but his friend Bobby Brown has finally explained why the former boxer lost the heavyweight championship belt.
“We used to do crazy sh*t,” Brown said in an interview for an A and E documentary, quoted by Givemesport.
“Me and Mike Tyson are friends to this day, but there was a time when we partied in Japan right before his fight with Buster Douglas,” he said.
“We partied like really, really, really hard. There must have been two dozen girls in the room with me and Mike.
“We partied and I was trying to tell him to get some sleep.
“Eventually he got some sleep [in the ring]. Do not put that part in there please, he is going to kill me!”
Douglas earned $1.3 million from the fight while Tyson pocketed $6 million.
