Mathis, to his credit, tried to get back to his feet before the ten count, but he was unable to do so before the referee called the bout. There is no nice way to put it.
Watching Mike Tyson demolish an overwhelmed Larry Holmes would make even a diehard fight fan feel a bit uncomfortable.
Holmes was, in the closing seconds of the fight, seemingly attempting to survive more so than he was trying to win, and Tyson patiently stalked his prey as he waited for an opening.
Holmes very well may have been out cold before he hit the mat, and the referee did not even bother wasting his time with a ten count. Henry Tillman was the first man to face Tyson after Tyson shockingly lost the heavyweight championship of the world to Buster Douglas in what is still known as one of the greatest upsets in boxing and fight history.
The night did not go well for Mr. Tillman survived blows to the face and seemed to be on his way to returning to the corner at the end of the first round until Tyson delivered a crushing blow to the forehead.
Down went Tillman, and down stayed Tillman as the ref counted to ten. That count was a formality, as Tillman was clearly knocked out.
One had to have a significant amount of bravery to step into the ring to face Tyson during his prime. Frank Bruno did so twice. That man may have deserved a medal for his toughness.
He at least deserved better than what he received from Tyson in Bruno escaped certain doom in the first two rounds of the fight, but fate caught up to him in the third; well, fate and a body blow followed by a hook caught up to him.
Bruno managed to remain on his feet only with the assistance of the ropes, but there was little question that he was out before the referee stepped in to save the day.
The son of famous boxer Joe Frazier was hoping to continue a legacy when he attempted to upset Tyson in That try ended nearly immediately after it began.
No ten count was necessary in this instance, as Frazier was put into dreamland by a pair of uppercuts. Frazier had remained standing after the second blow, though, and so he was struck with two other head shots until his body collapsed into the corner.
Both were pro boxers. That was about all that Tyson and Berbick had in common that day. Berbick instead fell into the ropes and then onto his back.
He likely did not know that the fight had been ended by the referee by the time that he was able to stand. Even then, Berbick still needed help from the ref to remain upright.
Carl Williams had a tremendous boxing nickname: It was a brutal left hand that served as the birth of this Tyson KO, one that nearly knocked Williams clean through the ropes and out of the ring.
Williams tried to recover enough that he could continue, but he was unable to even look straight ahead at the referee during the count. Williams appeared to be surprised that the fight had been stopped, probably because he was not quite sure where he was at.
Michael Spinks probably should have known that trouble was coming when Tyson nearly galloped out of his corner at the start of the fight. In all fairness, though, Spinks did not have all that long to think about it before he was on his back.
Spinks was rocked by Tyson punches early in the first round, and a left hook to the head followed by a body shot forced Spinks down to a knee.
He would have been wise to have remained on that knee through the ten count. Spinks instead rose to fight again, but one final right hand to the head from Tyson put him down for good.

Holyfield had retired in following the loss of his championship to Michael Moorer. It was said that Don King and others saw former champion Holyfield, who was 34 at the time of the fight and a huge underdog, as a washed-up fighter.
In a surprising turn of events, Holyfield, who was given virtually no chance to win by numerous commentators,  defeated Tyson by TKO when referee Mitch Halpern stopped the bout in round eleven.
Although the headbutts were ruled accidental by the referee,  they would become a point of contention in the subsequent rematch.

Mike Tyson in popular culture. No More Mr Bad Ass".

He was down , and , when suddenly the old Tyson showed up as he hammered Botha with a clean right hand to the chin. Botha went down hard, then struggled to back his knees but could not beat the count, after which he stumbled into the ropes and fell down.
Holmes, the Hall of Fame former world champion, was past his prime and coming off a nearly two-year layoff when he was matched with a prime Tyson in a historic meeting of great heavyweights from different generations.
As expected, Tyson destroyed Holmes, finally putting him away with a memorable onslaught leading up to a nasty right hand to the face that dropped Holmes flat on his back.
Four months after Douglas stripped Tyson of his unbeatable aura, Tyson returned with a vicious knockout of Tillman, who had twice defeated Tyson in the amateur ranks and had cost him a spot on the U.
But their pro fight was a blowout that ended with a classic Tyson overhand right to the head that sent Tillman careening off the ropes and down in a heap.
A classic one-punch Tyson KO. Four fights before Tyson won the world title, he turned in an electrifying and wickedly violent knockout, needing only 30 seconds -- the fastest knockout of his career -- to destroy Frazier, the son of former heavyweight world champion Joe Frazier.
Before the fans had even gotten comfortable in their seats, Tyson hurt Frazier with a right uppercut, a left to the head, another right uppercut and a right-left-right combination that dropped Frazier to his knees.
This was the early, pre-prime Tyson at his ferocious finest. As historic as this knockout was, it was equally explosive. Who could forget the image of Berbick flopping around the ring when he tried to get up from a devastating left hook to the jaw?
After Berbick survived a knockdown in the first few seconds of the second round, Tyson landed the title-winning left hook, essentially scoring three knockdowns with the single punch: First, Berbick fell from the hook.
