20 Years Ago Today…

Two notable events that happened February 11, 1990.

First, Nelson Mandela was released from prison after 27 years. He was imprisoned longer than any of the other defendants who were charged in the Rivonia Trial in 1963-64.

On the other end of the spectrum, in what is now being called “the biggest upset in sports history,” Mike Tyson was knocked out by Buster Douglas. The betting odds were officially 42:1 at the time of the fight.

More notable events from February 11.
