FOR ME IT WAS June 28, 1997 Tyson vs. Holyfield II, I was 8 at the time when they fought in a rematch and before that time, I never really sat down to watch boxing because i was more into WWF (Attitude Era) & WCW, but i knew Tyson mainly due to his staged fight with my guy at the time (Stone Cold) so i had to take notice. Little did I know when I watched that fight "shit got real" for me. I felt at the time that it had all the makings of what Wrestling Entertainment was about but 10 times more real and that infamous ear biting episode mike delivered made me a fan ever since.

BOXING FAN SINCE 97







Added Question:

What fight first had you take notice of your favorite fighter?

My Favorite fighter is "Money" Mayweather for this reason... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgjjuUo5G4o...feature=related

Like a lot of countries outside of America, football (soccer) and boxing were two of the major/ the main sports when I was growing up. My father was a huge boxing fan so it's hard to say which was the first match that I can say blew my mind because boxing and soccer were always on (soccer more so). Of course I was aware of Ali etc., but I don't know, maybe Nigel Benn vs. Chris Eubank. Tyson's earlier bouts always generated a lot of buzz. I remember how his legend grew with wins over people like James "Bonecrusher" Smith, Mitch "Blood" Green etc.
