I watched this fight, I was about 11 years old and was totally expecting to see Tyson slay this guy in the first round like he did with everybody. IIRC they had trouble selling tickets for this fight b/c a lot of people felt the same way, thinking they wouldn't get their money's worth paying full price for a quick fight.
Boy were they wrong. I've never been a huge fan of boxing, but this was by far one of the most interesting and shocking fights I've ever seen. On the link is a great video retrospective:
