Time Travel “Evidence” Discovered In 1995 Boxing Footage

What did I say, time travelers? All those years ago? What’s the number one rule of time travel that every wannabe chrononaut just can’t seem to follow?

No cell phones.

It’s a simple request, but clearly time travelers have respect for neither space nor time. You see, yet again, proof of their temporal gallivanting has popped up on YouTube, threatening to tear apart the very fabric of our fragile universe.

The footage, uploaded on September 18, 2015 by JammyBantam, shows us a 1995 Las Vegas boxing match featuring Mike Tyson and Peter McNeeley. A perfectly normal affair, to be sure. But in the crowd, we see our alleged time traveler, holding up what some claim to be a modern-day smartphone.

Is this, as the video suggests, yet more proof of time travel? Skeptics may claim the object is just an ordinary, albeit unique, camera available at the time. A Casio, perhaps, as the Inquisitr mentions. But we know the truth, don’t we?

Obnoxious, oblivious time traveling tourists have struck again!

  1. This is the first of these that’s actually really made me raise an eyebrow. It’s pretty clear in the other alleged videos of time travelers with cell phones that it’s something else since it’s usually just “vaguely brick shape object being held to ear,” but this clip has the camera positioned just right to be a smartphone and not to be any of the other alleged possibilities (the Logitech Fotoman has the lens in the center, the QV-10 had a black area surrounding the lens area not seen here. Granted, nobody has been able to match up exactly which alleged smartphone it would be either, but this case is definitely not closed. I love this stuff.

    1. I keep trying to think of any cameras that looked like that, but I can’t — not of any that were around over 20 years ago. Maybe it’s an off-brand or unreleased model. Either way, yeah, this stuff’s always fun to write about.

    2. Totally agree. It blatantly looks like a smartphone to me. So, if it’s not a time traveller, what is in this person’s hand? Could it be a magnifier of some sorts?? A really fancy one??

      Love it.

    3. It looks so large, it may be one in the future, as it seems cell phones are only getting larger.

  2. He appears to be using a viewfinder. Why would a smartphone have a viewfinder?

  3. You know it kinda looks like a Casio QV-10 that was released in ’95. The image is slightly distorted/blurred but it would be being held vertical rather than the horizontal.

  4. While it could look like a smartphone. Someone could have mechanically altered a 90s camera and have it look like that.

  5. Kodak disc film camera. Was popular for a short time.

  6. how about a Nikon E100..?? i found a pic of one..


  7. It’s not a smartphone, although I wish it was. This video was obviously edited, and the footage of the smartphone was actually from the Tyson/Douglas fight, which took place in Japan. Just look closely at the spectators and you’ll see mostly Japanese people. This is just a high tech Japanese camcorder (for the time) that was popular in Japan and at the time was not even available in the US. Sorry to burst your bubble guys.

  8. Smartphone’s weren’t that advanced back then and it can’t be a time traveler because that phone looks older than anything we have in 2017

  9. just because the american markets did not offer smart phones in the 90’s doesn’t mean they did not exist. japan has had hand held cameras and phones with cameras since the early 90’s so this could have been one of them. they cost a fortune but since this person is sitting in the front row of a tyson fight then we can deduce that this person has the money to buy one considering how much front row tickets cost at top boxing fights

  10. Its a nikon handheld camera. One if the earliest model of cameras that can be turn upside down to snap picture. The guy that holds the camera is snapping the fight images. The flashing red colour is visible on the side of the camera flash.
