Where is it?

But seriously do espn sell any old films? I'm pretty sure they would have some of the fights I'm looking for. Can't see why they would hoard them.

If I lived in the us I would actually go and find him and see if he has any of his fights. As long as he didn't hit me that right hand

That probably is your best bet, some fighters or family members have got film of their own fights that aren't in the public domain.

Are we still allowed to post links to youtube on here? I got a message from ESB the other day about copyrighted footage, I presume everybody else got it.

Yeah I've seen that one but thanks anyway. Of all the little fights I'm sat here wondering why only this fight ended up on the Internet?

And id like to ask mcgrain how he got that as well
