Default John Heenan vs. Tom Sayers the first Megafight?

I would definitely say so! It was the first time a boxing fight had sparked major interest in America and England.

It happened in the year 1860

What happened in the ring when Sayers fought Heenan, is one of the most dramatic, inspiring, and just all out craziest fights I have ever got the pleasure of reading about.

Tomorrow I'll come back to give a good recap of the events leading up to the fight and what happened in the fight.

I'll try to do a Deuce Il esque breakdown, however I will not use half-truths and I will provide my source.
