1991 Mike Tyson v Evander Holyfield Budweiser poster (cancelled fight)
Mike Tyson was scheduled to meet Evander Holyfield in a highly anticipated heavyweight showdown at Caesars Palace in November 1991. Tyson was attempting to win back the undisputed heavyweight championship he had lost in the shock defeat to Buster Douglas the previous year. Tyson had to withdraw from the fight due to a rib injury, and was then convicted of rape before the fight could take place. This is an original promotional poster produced by Budweiser in 1991. It is arguably the most visually appealing of all the Tyson-Holyfield posters made. Measures 19" x 30" in very good condition. There are several small, unobtrusive wrinkles.
