1990 (Boxing): In what some consider to be the biggest upset in sports history, Buster Douglas knocks out previously undefeated Mike Tyson in the 10th round. Douglas was listed anywhere from 10-1 to 50-1 although it was also reported that the Las Vegas sportsbooks did not set a line for the fight since it was assumed Tyson would easily win. The fight was held in Tokyo, Japan as Douglas improved to 30-4-1.
