Oba "Motor City" Carr (39-1, 23 KOs)
vs. Ike "Bazooka" Quartey (32-0, 28 KOs)
Oct. 4, 1996, Madison Square Garden Theatre, New York City
Carr's only career loss, to Tito Trinidad, was two years in the past when he stepped into the ring against the undefeated Quartey with the WBA welterweight crown on the line. The Bazooka came into the bout fully expecting to extend his unbeaten streak against the No. 1 ranked welterweight contender. A close fight between two great boxers was anticipated, and this one didn't disappoint.
