Was it the fight where JMM leathered Pac? Fourth fight, Dobz?

$50? That's like £40 in UK money. Jesus.
The first fight where the ref didn’t tally the scorecard correctly and pac should have won if it weren’t for a judging error..

I thought Pac lost the rest of the fight after the second round..

Bernard Dunne lifting his scrawny chinny self off the canvas twice against Ricardo Cordoba and rallying to stop him in the 11th is definitely one of the fights that made me a hardcore fan.

Dunne probably doesnt know how many Irish people he introduced to boxing back in the day.

That fight was so ace. The crowd were absolutely bananas that night.

I can watch that fight over and over again and never get bored of it.

I was born in 1968, but I have memories of Ali's fight with Norton when his Jaw was broken. I was always drawn in by the mic work of Ali and Howard Cosell. The Alin cartoon was also a draw for me. There wad a neighborhood guy who was also a boxing fan. He gave me his collection of Big Book of Boxing, Ring and KO magazines. There were hundreds of issues, and I read them all. After that I was always a boxing fan.
I am a bit older than you. Ali-Norton was one of my early memories too. But for me it started with the build-up for the first Al-Frazier fight. I watched Ali's warmup fights and then everybody was talking about this Fight of the Century. It seemed like the entire world stopped.

I feel fortunate to have been born into such a great period of heavyweight boxing.

I was just about to post basically the same thing word for word. Back then when there was a huge heavyweight fight you would listen to the radio but they could only give a 30 second description of the a round after the round was over.
