the first of which was Teddy Sander's tko of Alex Ramos then the Animal Fletcher fights which were televised. Dwight Braxton looked like a good bet to beat Spinks in a unification with his violent rubouts of Saad Muhammud & E Davis.... Sanchez-Nelson,,, the first telvised fight of Hector Camacho & the Tony Ayala sodimizations of Epps & Gregory

By Sept of that year, the threat of Duran seemed like a thing of the past, certainly not taken as a serious threat to Ayala

Also memorable was Aguello's 1 punch ko of K Rooney

The highlight of the year was probably Pryor-Arguello

nobody likes to mention it but Mancini-Kim

He went to jail for that, didn't he?
