What Boxer Was Scared of Mike Tyson and Got Knocked Out in the 1st Round?

I heard that there was a boxer scared to death of mike tyson and nearly never came out of the dressing room to the ring. Does anyone know who he was?

as mentioned every fighter other than holyfield was scared of tyson and michael spinks is a obvious choice but bruce seldon was blasted out in 1 round looked terrified when tyson took his WBA title

    As shown many might have been, but the one that really froze was Michael Spinks former light heavyweight champion that was ko’d in 90 seconds of the 1st.

    Michael Spinks, I would take issue with this business of being scarred, any one who steps in the four sided ring is worthy of respect in my opinion, Spinks as a blown up Light heavy was understandable wary of the power and speed of a Tyson at his abosolute peak, This was the real difference Micheal Spinks can be rightfully categorised with Billy Conn, Archie Moore and Bob Foster as the four greatest light heavyweight champions in boxing history. But where Foster and Moore failed, Spinks succeeded as a heavyweight.When he became the first light heavyweight king to move up and win the heavyweight title when he decisioned IBF champion Larry Holmes in 1985.
    That paved the way for a showdown against unbeaten and undisputed heavyweight king Mike Tyson. The fight lasted just 91, with Tyson scoring a knockout and erasing all doubt as to who was the heavyweight champion. Spinks retired after the fight.

    I would like to say that NO boxer is afraid or they would not be in the sport, but the night Spinks entered the ring if that was not fear on his face and body language then I will eat my hat!!
