Review: 2000-01-29, Mike Tyson vs Julius Francis was certainly one of the best fights of 2000, as many fighting of Iron Mike. In January 2000, when he faced Julius Francis (21-7-0), Mike Tyson (46-3-0) had already lost against James Buster Douglas and twice with Evander Holyfield, but at 33 years old he seemed still have the desire and the anger of the past.
