Every so often there are news stories that slip us by completely, one of those occurred in early September and was a rather touching one that we are sad to say we didn't read at the time.
The story in question was the reunion of Soo Hong Hwan [홍수환] and Hector Carrasquilla, who fought each other in the inaugural WBA Super Bantamweight title fight back in November 1977.
The bout was one of the most remarkable in living memory, with Hwan being dropped 4 times in round 2 before stopping Carrasquilla in the third round, marking one of the most amazing comebacks in boxing history.
The two, who seemingly hadn't met in the last 39 years, were all smiles and looked like incredibly close friends from the meeting, which occurred in the second week of September courtesy, in part to the Korean Foundation.
For fight fans that missed their classic bout we've included it below in full.
