USS John F. Kennedy (CV-67)

USS John F. Kennedy is the only ship of her class and the last conventionally powered carrier built for the United States Navy; the ship was named after the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy, was nicknamed "Big John". Kennedy was designated a CVA. After nearly 40 years of service in the United States Navy, Kennedy was decommissioned on 1 August 2007, she is berthed at the NAVSEA Inactive Ships On-site Maintenance facility in Philadelphia and, until late 2017, was available for donation as a museum and memorial to a qualified organization. In late 2017, the Navy designated her for dismantling; the name has been adopted by the future Gerald R. Ford-class aircraft carrier John F. Kennedy. Contracted as Ship Characteristic Board SCB-127C, the ship's keel was laid on inclined Shipway 8 by Newport News Shipbuilding on 22 October 1964. By 1965, the larger semi-submerged Shipway 11 became available, where final construction was completed; the ship was christened 27 May 1967 by Jacqueline Kennedy and her 9-year-old daughter, two days short of what would have been President Kennedy's 50th birthday.

The ship entered service 7 September 1968. John F. Kennedy is a modified version of the earlier Kitty Hawk-class aircraft carriers. Scheduled to be the fourth Kitty Hawk-class carrier, the ship received so many modifications during construction she formed her own class; the ship was ordered as a nuclear carrier, using the A3W reactor, but converted to conventional propulsion after construction had begun. The island is somewhat different from that of the Kitty Hawk class, with angled funnels to direct smoke and gases away from the flight deck. Kennedy is 17 feet shorter than the Kitty Hawk class. After an ORI conducted by Commander, Carrier Division Two, Kennedy left for the Mediterranean in April 1969; the ship relieved USS Forrestal. Rear Admiral Pierre N. Charbonnet, Carrier Striking Forces, Sixth Fleet, Commander, Carrier Striking Unit 60.1.9, shifted his flag to John F. Kennedy; the turnover complete by nightfall, the carrier, escorted by destroyers, transited the Strait of Gibraltar at the start of the mid watch on 22 April.

The next day, John F. Kennedy refueled from USS Marias, acquired the company of a Soviet Kotlin-class destroyer. Kennedy's maiden voyage, several of her subsequent voyages, were on deployments to the Mediterranean during much of the 1970s to help deal with the deteriorating situation in the Middle East, it was during the 1970s that Kennedy was upgraded to handle the S-3 Viking. Kennedy was involved in the Navy response to the Yom Kippur War in the Middle East in October 1973, with her actions and the larger U. S. Navy picture being described in Elmo Zumwalt's book On Watch. In 1974, she won the Marjorie Sterrett Battleship Fund Award for the Atlantic Fleet. On 20 June 1975 Kennedy was the target of arson, suffering eight fires, with no injuries, while at port in Norfolk, Virginia. On 22 November 1975, Kennedy collided with the cruiser Belknap damaging the smaller ship; as a result of the collision with John F. Kennedy's overhanging deck, JP-5 fuel lines were ruptured spraying fuel over an adjacent catwalk, fires ensued aboard both ships.

Belknap's superstructure was gutted to the main deck, seven of her crew killed. Aboard Kennedy, smoke inhalation claimed the life of Petty Officer 2nd Class Yeoman David A. Chivalette of VF-14, CVW-1. On 14 September 1976, while conducting a nighttime underway replenishment 100 miles north of Scotland, the destroyer Bordelon lost control and collided with Kennedy, resulting in such severe damage to the destroyer that she was removed from service in 1977. Earlier the same day, one F-14 Tomcat, following a problem with the catapult, fell off of the flight deck of John F. Kennedy, with AIM-54 Phoenix missiles in international waters, off the coast Scotland. Both crew members landed on the deck, injured but alive. A naval race followed between the Soviet Navy and US Navy to get back not only the plane, but its missiles. In 1979 Kennedy underwent her first, yearlong overhaul, completed in 1980. On 9 April 1979 she experienced five fires set by arson while undergoing overhaul at Norfolk Naval Shipyard, Virginia.

The fires injured 34 others. On 5 June 1979 Kennedy was the target of two more fires at Virginia. No one was injured in the incident. In 1979 she won her second Marjorie Sterrett Battleship Fund Award. On August 4, 1980 the Kennedy left Norfolk and voyaged to the Mediterranean Sea. On 4 January 1982, John F. Kennedy, with Carrier Air Wing Three, sailed as the flagship for Carrier Group Four from Norfolk, Va. on her ninth deployment, her first visit to the Indian Ocean after port visits to St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands, Malaga and transiting the Suez Canal. In her time in the Indian Ocean John F. Kennedy conducted her only port visit to Perth/Fremantle, Western Australia, anchoring in Gage Roads on 19 March 1982 for a R&R visit, departing on 25 March back to the Indian Ocean. During this time John F. Kennedy played host to the first visit of the Somali head of state, her cruise ended with port visits to Mombasa and Toulon, before returning home on 14 July 1982. In October 1983 John F. Kennedy was diverted to Beirut, Lebanon from her planned Indian Ocean deployment, after the Beirut barracks bombing killed 241

Mike Tyson vs. Donovan Ruddock

Mike Tyson vs. Donovan Ruddock, billed as "The Fight of the Year", was a professional boxing match contested on March 18, 1991. After losing the Undisputed Heavyweight Championship to James "Buster" Douglas on February 11, 1990, Mike Tyson embarked on a comeback hopes of regaining his title. First, he knocked out 1984 Olympic Gold Medalist and former amateur opponent, Henry Tillman in the first round, he met up-and-coming prospect Alex Stewart, whose 26 victories had all come by way of knockout. Despite Stewart's impressive resume, Tyson picked up another easy victory by way of 1st round technical knockout, knocking down Stewart three times in only 147 seconds. After those two victories, a match between Tyson, the number one ranked Heavyweight, Donovan "Razor" Ruddock, ranked number two, was agreed upon; the two men were set to face each other on November 18, 1989 in Edmonton with Tyson's Undisputed Championship on the line. However, the fight was postponed and cancelled because Tyson was suffering from costochondritis On December 9, 1990, the day after Tyson defeated Stewart, Tyson promoter Don King announced Ruddock would indeed be Tyson's next opponent while announcing that Tyson and Showtime had agreed to a blockbuster long term pay-per-view deal that would pay Tyson $120 million.

The fight was a hard fought one, with both men hitting each other with power punches throughout the fight. Early in the second round, Tyson scored a controversial knockdown. After being hit with a left hook to the shoulder, Ruddock tripped over Tyson's right leg and fell to the canvas. Referee Richard Steele awarded Tyson with the knockdown. Shortly after, Tyson would illegally hit Ruddock with a right hand as the two men were being separated by Steele, though Steele did not deduct a point from Tyson. Ruddock would suffer another knockdown late in round 3. After hitting Tyson with a straight left hand with less than 10 seconds to go in the round, Tyson countered with a powerful left hook to the side of Ruddock's head that again sent Ruddock to the canvas. Ruddock was able to get up at the count of 8; the fight would come to an end with less than a minute remaining in round 7. Tyson was able to hit Ruddock with a six-punch combination. Though Ruddock remained on his feet and was healthy enough to continue the fight, Steele stepped between the two fighters and stopped the fight, awarding Tyson the victory by technical knockout.

The decision enraged Ruddock's corner with Ruddock's brother and manager, Delroy storming the ring to confront Steele. Tyson's trainer Richie Giachetti attempted to restrain Delroy but a melee ensued that involved Ruddock's promoter Murad Muhammad. Mirage security had to break up the scuffle and escort Steele to safety
