Mike Tyson was released from prison in early 1995 and the boxing world wasn't yet sure if he was going to return to the ring.  On March 29th however, he held a short press conference and announced that he was going to return with help of his promoter Don King.  His next fight was one of the most anticipated of all time and even broke the previous Pay-Per-View record.  The fight was to take place on August 19, 1995 versus the relatively unknown Peter "Hurricane" McNeeley.  From the first bell, McNeeley came at Tyson like a "hurricane" but was quickly knocked down.  After a standing eight count, he went after him again, and was quickly knocked down.  This time though it was over, after only 89 seconds.  From this highly anticipated and quick match comes this 21 x 38" colorful plastic advertising piece.  Features and image of Tyson with his arms crossed and appears to be waiting for the fight to start.  EX
