Mike Tyson's 42-1 odds over Buster Douglas were a lie

As for Douglas, he couldn’t even hold it together for nine months. By the time he made his first defense, against Evander Holyfield the following October, he had signed a (for the time) huge deal with Vegas hotelier Steve Wynn, been robbed of $ 4 million in a nuisance lawsuit brought by Don King and Donald Trump, who claimed they had the rights to a Tyson rematch, and ballooned to 246 pounds, 11 more than he weighed the night he fought Tyson, by fight night.
