The Fight

Chasing Tyson, an ESPN 30 for 30 documentary (directed by Steven Cantor, ESPN Films, 2015), looks at Evander Holyfield’s years leading up to his first fight with Mike Tyson. Tyson was the biggest fighter in boxing at the time. No one expected Holyfield to usurp the hard-hitting phenom from Brooklyn. After unexpectedly winning his first bout with “Iron Mike,” however, Holyfield ended up winning the much-anticipated rematch as well. Though the first victory was a huge surprise, the second victory should not have been. If Holyfield was able to win the first fight, then he certainly was able to win the second fight. Likewise, if God was able to create human beings in his image, then he is certainly able to re-create human beings in his image.
