Monroe Brooks vs. Bruce Curry (1978 at the Olympic Auditorium in LA)

"This is one of the best fights I've seen in the last ten years."-Gil Clancy

"At the signal, unleash hell."-Russell Crowe from the movie "Gladiator"

Sometimes you watch a bout on TV and don't really know what to expect. You hope you might be pleasantly surprised, but you don't know enough about the fighters to work up the anticipation. If Rios fights Alvarado, you get ready because you know what's coming. If Bradley fights Provodnikov, you prepare for the worst because of Timothy's heretofore reluctance to engage, but then you get the opposite. This was one of those times and what I would witness would become indelible; indeed, who knew it would become a classic?
