This Day In Sports: Evander Holyfield Becomes Undisputed Heavyweight Champion [Video]

Holyfield Douglas

On this day in 1990, Evander “Real Deal” Holyfield knocked out champion Buster Douglas in the third round to become the Undisputed Heavyweight Champion of the world.

Buster Douglas had won the The Ring, WBC, WBA & IBF World Heavyweight titles when he surprisingly knocked out Mike Tyson eight months earlier in what was dubbed the upset of the year.

Douglas never really had a chance in Las Vegas as Holyfield handled him pretty easily throughout the fight.
