Description



When "Iron Mike" Tyson fought you didn't want to blink. Of Tyson's 58 career fights, nearly 70% lasted only a brief 3 rounds or less. Such was the case when he scored a second round TKO over Tony Tubbs in their 1988 title bout to gain his 34th consecutive victory.

 

From the Tokyo Dome comes this 6x9 broadside issued for the 3/21/88 Tyson vs. Tubbs championship match. This crisp handbill is vibrant and glossy, with bold colors and fascinating graphics. The presence of three horizontal compacting folds and moderate but unobtrusive wrinkling do little to hamper the broad appeal of this sllck souvenir.

 

Tyson is featured on the obverse in a captivating art image, along with Japanese language text and a "Big Egg" Tokyo Dome arena logo. The reverse side features photos of the events combatants with the title "Iron Mike vs. Tony "TNT" Tubbs" standing out against more Japanese text. Get ready to rumble, as competition for this rare international collectible should be fierce.
