30 years ago, Douglas beat Tyson.
Tuesday marks the 30th anniversary of Buster Douglas beating Mike Tyson in maybe the biggest upset in sports history.

Where were you when you heard about the upset? How did you react?

Not too long after the fight, Howard Stern had Douglas on his radio show.

Stern asked him how much he made from the fight. He said about a million dollars, but after paying off all his "handlers", his manager wrote him a check for $5,000!
