June 27, 1988: Mike Tyson defeated Michael Spinks by KO in round 1 (91 seconds) and retained the world heavyweight title. Spinks, who was undefeated coming into the fight never boxed again and announced his retirement a month later. Mike Tyson also hinted at retiring after the fight stating “this may be my last fight”,  Instead, Tyson had fought his last fight with his long-time trainer Kevin Rooney who was fired at the urging of Don King. After this fight, Tyson’s skills started to decline and 18 months later suffered his first professional loss to Buster Douglas (who coincidentally fought on the Tyson-Spinks under-card knocking out Mike Williams in 7 rounds)
