In 1997 when Johnny Tapia fought Danny Romero for the WBO and IBF Super Flyweight titles, who was the betting favorite and who did you pick to win that fight? And what about everyone else who watched this fight back then?

If you did.

Tapia was the betting favorite and I picked Tapia to win via UD.

Wow. I would have figured you would pick Romero. Seems like most did. Cool.

Agreed. Romero was on a hot streak but Tapia hd a real good chin, the better skills and an attitude that at 115 was hard to bet against.

Looking back Tapia also had the mental edge which in local rivalies usually seems to be the deciding factor.

Sorry Ric and Run for bring up this old question but when I seen it, my rememberance of the night made it hard to resist.
:thanks:
