  • Date: 1985-07-19
  • Location: Mid-Hudson Civic Center, Poughkeepsie, New York, USA
  • Referee: Joe Cortez


  • Mike Tyson 5-0 (5 KOs) vs. Larry Sims 3-16-3 (2 KOs)
  • It was the tenth known knockout loss of Sims' professional career.
  • No known footage of the fight exists as it has been said that the film crew who was scheduled to cover the fight failed to show in time. By the time they arrived the fight was over.
  • Another theory is that Tyson's team destroyed the footage because he had a poor performance and when they were sending Tyson's fights around to boxing journalists, they didn't want anyone seeing the fight.
