July 19, 1985

On this day in 1985, Joan Jett called the up-and-coming heavyweight boxer Mike Tyson before his fight with opponent Larry Sims, which Tyson won handily. The superstitious Tyson insisted on receiving a call from Jett before every fight, which he does until breaking his tradition when he fought against Buster Douglas on February 11, 1990 –  Tyson’s first loss.
