Meticulously researched, wonderfully written; the untold#xA0;story of a legendary fight and the two warriors who would never be the same again #xA0; It is considered by many to be the biggest upset in the history of#xA0;boxing: James#xA0;"Buster" Douglas#xA0;knocked out then-undefeated Heavyweight Champion Mike Tyson in#xA0;the 10th round#xA0;in 1990#xA0;when the dominating and intimidating Tyson#xA0;was considered invincible. THE LAST GREAT FIGHT takes readers not only behind the scenes of this epic battle, but inside the lives of two men, their ambitions, their dreams, the downfall of one and the rise of another. Using his exclusive#xA0;interviews with#xA0;both Tyson and Douglas, family members, the referee, the cutmen, trainers and managers to the commentators and HBO staff covering the fight in Tokyo, Layden has crafted a#xA0;human drama played out on a large stage. This is a compelling tale of shattered dreams and, ultimately, redemption.
