Danny Romero had the world at his feet in 1995.

Young,undefeated and already a multi weight world champ when he had a took a tune up (or a keep in shape fight anyway) against oft beaten journeyman Willy Salazar.

He got a broken orbital bone and his first loss in this fight and whilst having a decent career he never reached the heights touted for him earlier on.

I suppose George Chip-Al McCoy is another prime example of this.

Miranda facing Pavlik.

Pretty much put an end to Edison's hype.




On the same subject (though not a tune-up), Pavlik taking on Bhop.

Beginning of the end for the ghost.
