The most notable bout on this day was a very recent one, coming in 2012 when Filipino icon Manny Pacquiao met his Mexican nemesis Juan Manuel Marquez for the 4th time. Sadly for Pacquiao the bout isn't remembered for what he did but rather how the bout ended with him lying face first after one of the most tremendous knockouts in recent years. The bout was supposed to the final chapter in their story together though there has been talk of a 5th fight between the two men. Prior to the knockout both men had been down and the fight been really good with high paced action and it seemed that Marquez had been hurt, the knockout however rendered all of that as moot.
A little further back, in 1990, fans saw Mexican great Julio Cesar Chavez destroy Korean Kyung Duk Ahn. Ahn was trying to claim the WBC and IBF Light Welterweight titles but was given a serious beat down by the Mexican great in a bout that left many wondering why Ahn had been given the shot or what Ahn had done to deserve a #1 ranking with the WBC.
A better result for Korean fans came back in 1985 when the great Myung Woo Yuh claimed the WBA Light Flyweight title with a split decision over Joey Olivo. This win began Yuh's great reign which saw him defending the belt frequently until being upset in 1991 by Hiroki Ioka. A rematch with Ioka saw Yuh reclaiming the title which he would defend one final time in 1993
