Mike Tyson's Stumbling KO Over Trevor Berbick: GIF Spotlight

On the 22nd of November, 1986, Mike Tyson became the youngest man to win a major heavyweight title with a 2nd round TKO of Trevor Berbick. Berbick had one of the more memorable knockout losses of the 1980's for this stumbling attempt to get up after one left hook hit him just right. He never stopped trying to recover, and Referee Mills Lane gave him some liberty to do so, trying to defend his title for the first time. Even when he did get up, Trevor Berbick was still unsteady and stumbling. When a shot is just right, it's just right.
