Brilliant night when he won the title. Ridiculous atmosphere. Cordoba was it?
Yeah. I think those of us who weren't in Ireland had to watch the fight on an RTE stream, which to be fair worked better than most streaming options at the time :lol:

One of the best fights -- and atmospheres as you say -- that I've witnessed over the past ten years.

@dkos, what a fantastic fighter , but unfortunately in 2004 he was sentenced to twentyfour years in prison for drug offences, and is not due for release until December2019. Regards Mervyn The Gee

I lived in Dublin back then and went to watch Dunne vs Kiko, that was easily the best to worst change in atmosphere I’ve ever experienced in boxing.
