What fight turned you from a casual fan to a hardcore fan?
for me it was winky vs tito
I can remember being a young kid in nyc. Tito was like a god amongst ricans. I would defend his "victory" over dlh to the death against my mexican peers lol. He koed mayorga in an entertaining fight. So i thought he would do the same to winky. Tito vs this pillow puncher?... its a no brainer. hes gonna steamroll him. Boy was i wrong.
i watched winky just embarrass tito for 12 rds. he couldnt land anything. Winky just pumped that right jab all night. protecting his face with his gloves and his midsection with his elbows. It was a masterfull display of the sweet science on winkys part. He negated everything tito was trying to do in there and just laughed at him while doing it.
I became a hardcore fan after this fight. and a big fan of pure boxers. Before that night i loved to watch guys like roy jones who were exciting. I hated guys like tarver.... but after witnessing winkys brilliance... I was hooked.
