We at ImaSportsphile just love short pieces of history…..and this video is one of those…..plus it is done so well….as we consider them to be “pure gold” in our treasure chest of boxing memories. It provides so many memories in such a short period of town….as well as a history of each time that a light heavywt champ fought the heavywt champ.
