Mike Tyson vs. Frank Bruno was a professional boxing match contested on February 25, 1989 for the WBA, WBC, IBF and lineal heavyweight championships.
The fight got off to a fast start with the two men exchanging punches in the middle of the ring as soon as the round started. At the end of this exchange, Tyson would knock down Bruno with a right hook, though Bruno was able to get up at the count of 4. Tyson and Bruno would continue to fight aggressively, but after several warnings from referee Richard Steele, Bruno had a point deducted due to excessive holding. With about 50 seconds left in the round, Bruno hit Tyson with a left hook–right hand combination that staggered the champion for the first time in his professional career. At the end of round 2, Tyson hit Bruno with a right hand that sent Bruno into the ropes. Sensing a knockout, Tyson would continue to hammer Bruno, but Bruno was able to hold on to Tyson and survive the round. Tyson would continue to dominate the fight into round 5 and, with a minute left in the round, would continuously attack Bruno with powerful combinations. The fight would finally end with less than 10 seconds to go in the round as Tyson was able to get Bruno up against the ropes and hit him with two right uppercuts and a left hook. Before Bruno could go down, Steele stepped in and stopped the fight, awarding Tyson the victory by technical knockout.
