I was in college. We didn't have a subscription to HBO, but I recall someone who did calling during the fight and telling me Douglas was well ahead of Tyson on points. So we turned on the TV and listened to it (picture was all scrambled, but the sound was decent). Heard the KO and we practically went into shock.
I was 11. My grandparents had movie channels. So when I spent nights over there I would watch boxing. I used to really like it back when the Tyson, Lewis, Holyfield, were in their hayday.
It was also about the time in my life that I would sit through the worst movies if beforehand it said "nudity". And often being disappointed when it was like mans ass and not boobs. Thats about the age I figured out what comes on Cinemax after midnight too. Good times.
Scrambled channels. I used to watch every wrestling pay per view that way... and of course spice channel.
