Re: What did boxing look like when you first got into it? (nostalgia thread)
When I went to my first fight the Heavyweights had Ali/Holmes up the following week.
Roberto Duran was the finest fighter on the Planet, having upset the previously unbeaten American Olympian hero, Ray Leonard.
I was going to see a Marvelous fighter take on Britain's World Middleweight Champ.
As well as Minter, we also had Maurice Hope and this Lightweight having an Indian summer to his career, as he helped try fill a Roberto Duran size hole in the Lightweight division.
And sadly Johnny Owen lied in hospital a week away from death...
