Well we are back for the 9th installment of Fight of the week, where we review, rescore and remember some historic fights of the past. This week the FOTW time machine takes us back to April 22, 1979 at Market Square Arena in Indianapolis, Indiana. This is our first: trip to the LHW division; and our first fight that does not go the distance. This was a rematch of their previous encounter for the Vacant NABF LHW title that was left vacant after Victor Galindez won his world title. In that fight Franklin (His name at that time) stopped Johnson in 12 rounds. Now almost 2 years later Marvin and Matthew are back in action bringing us one of histories most exciting fights. Round 8 was voted the round of the year, and this fight came in at #35 in Rings greatest title fights. It was after this fight that Franklin changed his name to Saad Muhammad, and I call him that...But in my Philly heart he will always be Miracle Matthew! So here is the fight link (no sound for the first 1:10...but it is there), looking forward to hearing some thoughts, stories from those who remember this time period well.
