It always helps to have The Champ in your corner.
James "Buster" Douglas, who famously knocked out Mike Tyson to win the undisputed heavyweight boxing title in 1990, showed his support for the Columbus Blue Jackets during Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Second Round on Thursday.
Douglas, who engineered one of the biggest upsets in all of sports when he came back from being knocked down in Round 8 to stop the previously undefeated Tyson in Tokyo, wore a Blue Jackets home jersey and mugged for cameras early in the game.
The former champion, now 59, is a native of Columbus, Ohio. At one point during the game, Douglas posed for phot with Amy Jones, the mother of Blue Jackets defenseman Seth Jones.
The series is tied 2-2 with Game 5 scheduled for Saturday in Boston.
