Esteban DeJesus (42-1-4, 22 KOs)

vs. Roberto Duran (41-1, 33 KOs)


March 16, 1974, Gimnasio Nuevo, Panama City, Panama

 The temperature at the opening bell was over 100 degrees for this rematch between the ferocious, 20-year-old WBA lightweight champ -- Duran -- and the only man who had ever beaten him. In their first meeting, a 10-round non-title bout two years earlier, DeJesus decked the Panamanian in the opening round and pounded out a unanimous decision at Madison Square Garden. The reunion would be just as remarkable.
