riddle me did larry holmes get up from this ?...i've wondered for years, perhaps the perfect punch with full weight behind it, lands right on the button from one, if not THE, greatest punchers of all did he get up ?

mitch green could take some stick....took everything prime tyson hit him with.

"A snarling Tyson came to the center of the ring literally foaming from the mouth. The ever cocky Green , he always came to the ring sporting a toothpick in the corner of his mouth, barraged Tyson with insults. The action of the bout was to prove anti-climatic, Tyson as always was moving forward, but the 6'5″ Green managed to tie Tyson up repeatedly. Tyson's most effective display of offense came in the third round when he landed a blow to Green's jaw with force sufficient to dis-lodge a section of bridge work and send it flying several feet to the ring apron. Through it all "Blood" Green managed to survive the ten rounds, with Tyson the clear winner.
This was not the last time Iron Mike and Blood Green would meet. In the early morning hours of August 23, 1988, Mike Tyson stopped by Dapper Dans, a Harlem clothing store frequented by a clientele from rap stars to pimps. Tyson was there to pick up a custom made jacket. Mitch Green happened to be in the area and an argument ensued, in which Green threw a punch and Tyson responded with a straight right landing on the bridge of Green's nose; requiring five stitches. Although Tyson won this second bout, shades of Walker vs. Greb, he suffered more in the long run. The bare knuckle punch resulted in a fracture to Tyson's hand causing a postponement of his scheduled first fight with Frank Bruno"
