Sept. 10, 1993, Alamodome, San Antonio, Texas
"El Gran Campion de Mexico" was in his prime, with one of the longest string of victories in boxing history, mostly knockouts. "Sweet Pea" was also at the top of his game, but needed to beat Chavez to cement his claim to a spot on the all-time pound-for-pound list. A collision between the two best pound-for-pound fighters on the planet is a rare happening in boxing, but it happened here. This remains one of the most-discussed fights of all time.
