COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Buster Douglas is marking the 30th anniversary of his upset boxing victory over Mike Tyson with a campaign aimed at inspiring others who face long odds.
The 59-year-old Douglas plans to announce his 42 to 1 initiative at the Ohio Statehouse Wednesday, alongside city and state leaders and two-time Heisman Trophy winner Archie Griffin.
The effort will include workforce development, diversity and self-help components. Columbus Franklin University and programs serving at-risk youth, former prison inmates and other vulnerable populations are participating.
