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.
