    ABC TV had a great card in 1979.
    Marvin Johnson-Victor Galindez
    Marvin Hagler-Vito Antuofermo I
    Ray Leonard- Wilfred Benitez
    I believe there could have been another bout. Plus there was a simular card a few months later with. Marvin Johnson-Eddie Gregory & Ray Leonard-Davey "Boy" Green.

    The 1980 card featured...

    Leonard vs. Green
    Weaver vs. Tate
    Gregory vs. Saad
    Holmes vs. Jones

    Pretty damned good card.

    This was a pretty exceptional card, too...

    1994...

    Julio Cesar Chavez vs. Tony Lopez
    Jorge Castro vs. John David Jackson (FOTY)
    Felix Trinidand vs. Oba Carr
    Ricardo Lopez vs. Yamil Carabello

    Great info! Thanks for filling in the blanks on the 1980 card. But I am almost 99% sure it was Gregory knocking out Marvin Johnson to win the WBA LightHeavyweight Crown. Who had just Knocked out Victor Galindez in the ABC 1979 Card. I don't think Saad-Gregory/Mustafa Muhammed ever fought as Champions.

    That was a typo on my part. Gregory did indeed stop Johnson in 11 on that card. Was looking up info on the Gregory-Franklin match that happened prior to them becoming champions, and I guess I had that on the brain when I was typing. Sorry for any confusion.

    That's correct, much to my dismay. That's in the top 3 of fights that should've been made during my formative years:

    Mustafa Muhammed vs Saad Muhammed
    Sanchez - Pedroza
    Pintor - Chandler

    The top one here and the one you quoted weren’t one card — the one you cite had Leonard-Green from Landover, Maryland (Leonard’s home state), Holmes-Jones from Las Vegas and the other two from Knoxville, Tennessee (Tate’s hometown).

    They were brought together for TV.

    Yeah, that wasn't an uncommon practice for network TV in the 70's and 80's, and HBO did the same thing during a few of their telecasts. It wouldn't have been on a single card, but viewers would likely regard those contests as being part of a single grouping of fights.

    Same as the Nov. 30, 1979 card. Galindez fought in New Orleans

    The card I mentioned from 1994 was on a single card, it should be noted.
