MIKE TYSON vs. PETER McNEELEY (Site/AUTO) 

Description : Here we have an original onsite poster from the MGM Grand Las Vegas that has been signed by Mike Tyson.......Mike Tyson vs. Peter McNeeley, billed as "He's Back", took place on August 19, 1995 at the MGM Grand. The match marked the return of Mike Tyson to professional boxing after over four years away due to his 1991 arrest and subsequent conviction for rape in 1992 which led to Tyson serving three years in prison. Tyson was paroled on March 25, 1995 and on March 29, he would hold a short press conference that would announce his return to boxing as well as that Don King would remain his promoter. After much debate over who would be Tyson's first opponent in his comeback, including talks about a potential superfight with George Foreman, it was announced that Tyson would face little-known Peter McNeeley on August 19, 1995.

The fight lasted only 89 seconds with Tyson earning an easy victory via disqualification. McNeeley started the fight by aggressively attacking Tyson as soon as the opening bell rang. Tyson was able to avoid McNeeley's wild punches and land a right hook that dropped McNeeley to the canvas less than 10 seconds into the fight. After taking referee Mills Lane's standing eight count, McNeeley was allowed to continue and again would continue his aggressive assault on Tyson. The two men would exchange punches in the corner as the first minute of the round passed. Less than 20 seconds later, Tyson would land a right uppercut that again sent McNeeley down. With McNeeley clearly hurt from the exchange, his manager Vinnie Vecchione entered the ring to prevent McNeeley from taking any more damage, causing Lane to end the fight and award Tyson the victory by disqualification.
