Default Re: Unknown/Forgotten Great Fights

one fight of the more modern era that was one of the most enjoyable things i had watched in a long time was...

Diego Corrales (25-0) vs Gairy St Clair (15-0-1) back in 1998.

IBF Feathweight Title Eliminator

both fighter came in undefeated and put on a show, Corrales was supposed to just knock St Clair out i think but he put on a really good show.

Corrales UD12 St Clair but it was not expected to be such a tough competeitive fight, Gairy nailed Corrales alot of times with the overhand right and had him shaken at some points. There where alot of power punches thrown and landed but neither would lie down. Entertaining as they get with both ifghters just going at it.

Great Fight....
