After picking up the WBC Heavyweight Championship by knocking out Frank Bruno for a second time, Mike Tyson targets the WBA title held by Bruce Seldon rather than defend his own belt against Lennox Lewis. In the very first round, Tyson appears to overshoot a right hand, but Seldon drops onto his belly for a knockdown anyway. Seldon gets back to his feet but is knocked into the ropes and again ends up face down after a left hook from Tyson. The WBA Champion again beats the count but wobbles into the corner, prompting Referee Richard Steele to stop him on his feet. The fans react with anger and chant about the bout being fixed, but Tyson collects another title.
