In the “Finally” match between Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield held on November 9, 1996 in Las Vegas, Holyfield pulled off the victory by TKO.
These trunks were given to the Vice President of International Boxing Association. The Vice President was also the advisor for Johnny Tapia. Mike Tyson was training with Johnny Tapia in Las Vegas. After training, Tyson handed Tapia’s advisor/Vice President the soaking trunks.
Presented are a pair of training trunks Mike Tyson wore in the preparation for the fight. They were obtained right after a gym session and were well-soaked with sweat. Indeed the boxing executive who obtained them said they were impossible at the time to have signed because of the soaking. The tagging is unique and an inclination into the rarity of the shorts. They are size XL as seen by the interior tag and the front Everlast logo has the identifier as MADE EXPRESSLY FOR MIKE TYSON – WORLD’S HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION. You would be hard pressed to find anything on the market as unique and rare as these.
