Two of the most volatile heavyweights in history clash when Mike Tyson squares off with Andrew Golota. Floored by Tyson in the opening round, Golota decides to quit after round two. While Tyson is restrained from going after Golota, the fans are not and proceed to pelt him with drinks on his way out of the arena. The fight has lasting consequences for both fighters as Golota suffers a fractured cheekbone and herniated disc and takes a three-year hiatus. After Tyson tests positive for marijuana, the bout is changed to a no contest and keeps him out of the ring for a full year, temporarily derailing his comeback bid.
