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

started learning to box at age 5 from family....love participating. that was in '76....then as far as watching....duran/leonard 1 is the fight that hooked me for life. it was the first time i ever watched a fight with a big crowd in a theater on closed circuit. i loved ali...then leonard...but duran took it to new heights. then pryor, hearns, benitez, hagler, arguello and countless others also contributed to making me a lifetime die hard.
