Between Rounds,” 1898–99, by Thomas Eakins

James “Buster” Douglas hits Mike Tyson with a hard right in the face during their world heavyweight title bout at the Tokyo Dome in Japan on Feb. 11, 1990.  Douglas came into the fight shaken by the death of his beloved, doting mother, Lula Pearl, who had died while he was training for the fight.  Then undefeated, undisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson lost via knockout in the 10th round to the 42–1 underdog Douglas.
