Singer Bobby Brown has claimed that the reason behind Mike Tyson‘s first ever defeat in a bout against Buster Douglas in 1990 was due to a two-day party with 24 women before the fight.
Tyson‘s loss to Douglas came as a surprise, but his friend has finally explained why the former boxer lost the heavyweight championship belt.
“We used to do crazy sh*t,” Brown said in an interview for an A and E documentary.
“Me and Mike Tyson are friends to this day, but there was a time when we partied in Japan right before his fight with Buster Douglas.
“We partied like really, really, really hard. There must have been two dozen girls in the room with me and Mike.
“We partied and I was trying to tell him to get some sleep.
“Eventually he got some sleep [in the ring]. Do not put that part in there please, he is going to kill me!”
Douglas won with a 10th round knockout and ‘Iron Mike’ had to wait up to six years to regain the WBC heavyweight title in a fight against Frank Bruno.
