    I watched that live in PPV, early was breathtaking as Mayorga was landing well, plus the bravado of letting Trindad hit him flush. I recall it was evenor close to even for 3 or 4 before Trinidad knock him out. Mayorga was such a strange fighter you don't know really how he will punch or able to land , it's so unorthodox

    Mayorga has the crazy smoker bad man image which he enjoyed and played up to. Taking those punches from Tito was taking that image too far and nearly got knocked out. Hated the fact Mayorga beat Fernando Vargas.

    This fight was not televised because they could not agree the amount with ITV and we missed a classic live.

    30 years today since Douglas took Tyson apart.

    Fucking hell I remember it like yesterday getting up and going down and putting ceefax on then running upstairs shouting to my dad he'd been knocked out. Biggest shock of my lifetime and I suspect will not be beaten.

    I'm also feeling fucking old.

    Crazy to again realize his age and relative inexperience going in against a champion of that caliber. Even worse the powers that be stripped the guy for having the nerve to be injured in a car accident leading to rematch. A precursor to history, he'd fall under new management be brought Stateside and become a great.

    On this day in 1970 Henry Cooper beat Jack Bodell at Wembley as he retained his British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles.

    Cooper triumphed on points against his fellow Briton in what was their second fight.

    They had previously met in June 1967 at Wolves’ Molineux stadium, where Cooper won via technical knock-out.



    The rematch came in the same year that Cooper became the first two-time winner of the BBC Sports Personality of the Year award.

    The former European champion subsequently retired in 1971 with a record of 40 wins (27 KOs) from 55 fights. He was knighted in 2000.

    Cooper, who died in 2011 at the age of 77, famously fought Muhammad Ali twice, losing both times – once in a non-title bout at Wembley in 1963 that saw him floor the fighter then known as Cassius Clay in round four, and then at Arsenal’s Highbury Stadium in 1966 when he was challenging for Ali’s WBA and WBC titles.

    Felix Trinidad KO's Mahenge Zulu for the 12th defense of his IBF welter world title. At the time, Trinidad surpassed Pipino Cuevas, who had 11 defenses of his WBA welterweight title. Trinidad finished with 15 defenses of his welter title (12 KO's), second only to Henry Armstrong, who had 19 defenses. Trinidad held the welterweight title for almost 7 years.

    That is classic Tito Trinidad, so crisp with his punches and that left hook finish was like watching Julian Jackson KO.

    Brilliant fighter and champion. became a fan of his after he beat my favourite fighters Carr and Campus.

    Not only that... they were both undefeated when he beat them.
