In the bout with Savarese, Tyson made a swift impact with a left hand that sent Savarese to the canvas. Savarese managed to rise but faced a relentless onslaught from Tyson. Referee John Coyle attempted to intervene at 26 seconds, but Tyson continued to attack, even briefly taking down Coyle. Tyson’s corner eventually entered the ring, and he regained his composure. The fight was declared a technical knockout victory for Tyson after only 38 seconds of action, making it the second quickest fight of his career, behind only his 30-second victory over Marvis Frazier in 1986.
