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
I remember all those fights. Mancini/Kim in the afternoon on a Sat. or Sunday. That whole situation was very depressing and the days after it. The Arguello/Pryor fight was incredible. That is a fight which lifted Alexis higher in the ATG ranking regardless of the fact that he lost.
