    Great thread. Crazy to think how ignorant we are as a species refusing service, slavery, war, our rampant destruction of this planet and its other inhabitants. Intelligent life my ass.

    Can't wait to see the choices for the 12th.

    Remember the Tom Johnson fight he was a warrior a mini Holyfield.

    Cooney v Holmes was before my time but do remember the hype on the mainstream news.

    Good on you dude, love the mix. Ploenchit v Guzman was a battle. Today in 94' I had Junior Jones losing by one point to Orlando Fernandez Mitchells ko of Liles while squinting thru busted eyes had to be one of the top 'come from behind' kos of that year!

    Yes indeed Hearns got robbed of the victory against Leonard – redemption should have been his.

    My fight for this day,

    1986: Hector Camacho v Edwin Rosario. Neither man would be the same even though Hector went on to reasonable success. It took a lot out of him. He was lucky to squeak this one out.




    1908-Tommy Burns KO 8 Bill Squires. Retains World Heavyweight Title.

    1935- James J. Braddock W 15 Max Baer. Wins World Heavyweight Title. Scoring: Referee McAvoy scored 9-5-1; Lynch 11-4; Kelly 7-7-1. One of the biggest upsets in boxing history and the fight in which the movie Cinderella Man is based.

    1938- Charley Burley W 10 Fritzie Zivic.

    1981- Marvelous Marvin Hagler KO 5 Vito Antuofermo. Retains World Middleweight Title. Fitting. I thought Marvin won the first fight and apparently so did Mills Lane. He told him to turn and face the camera so he could raise his arms when they made the call.

    1986- Hector Camacho W 12 Edwin Rosario. Retains WBC Lightweight Title.
    -Julio Cesar Chavez KO 7 Refugio Rojas. Retains WBC Super Featherweight Title.

    1997- Dariusz Michalczewski W 12 Virgil Hill. Wins IBF & WBA Light Heavyweight Title. Out of all the guys that I wished could have been sorted out with Roy this guy was number 1.

    1998:-Oscar DeLaHoya KO 3 Patrick Charpentier. Retains WBC Welterweight Title.
    -Cesar Bazan W 12 Stevie Johnston.Wins WBC Lightweight Title.
    -Freddie Norwood KO 8 Genaro Rios. Retains WBA Featherweight Title

    1999- In Joo Cho KO 8 Pone Saengmorakot Retains WBC Super Flyweight Title.

    2000- Former WBC Super Welterweight Champion Duane Thomas is shot and killed outside a convenience store.

    I was sure just by some unworldly coincidence you'd pick the Hagler fight on my birthday. Great choice though, that fight took a bit out of Hector.

    Arguably the left hooks that changed Camacho in approach and career, they cut the last two rounds off of scrap there? Damn shame how Thomas went out so young
