14 Year Old Mike Tyson's promise to Muhammad Ali
Tyson tells the story about watching Larry Holmes demolish Ali, and then at 14 years of age promising Ali that he would get Holmes for him.

The Larry Holmes vs Mike Tyson fight. At the 4:20 mark you can see Ali whispering something into Tyson's ear.

I'm just trying to figure this shit out like you are.

Tyson was quite a small HW, the weight diff. looks a lot greater than the suggested 10 lbs 215 vs. 225 lbs

I wonder what 30 year old Buster Douglas' promise was to Larry Holmes?

So he actually met Ali when Tyson was 14 ? I thought he has at the juvenile detention center at that age.

"Tyson was repeatedly caught committing petty crimes and fighting those who ridiculed his high-pitched voice and lisp. By the age of 13, he had been arrested 38 times.[24] He ended up at the Tryon School for Boys in Johnstown, New York. Tyson's emerging boxing ability was discovered there by Bobby Stewart, a juvenile detention center counselor "

He was living with Cus D'Amato at 14, and Cus knew all the boxing greats.
