Jeff Fenech (26-0-1, 19 KOs)
vs. Azumah Nelson (34-2-1, 25 KOs)
March 1, 1992, Princes Park Football Ground, Melbourne, Australia
The first time Nelson and Fenech collided, in June of 1991, they battled to a draw -- the lone blemish on Fenech's 27-bout record. The Australian fighter held the WBC super featherweight title and was heavily favored by the oddsmakers in this one. Azumah Nelson, though, wasn't used to losing -- his lone setbacks were to a prime-time Pernell Whitaker and the almost-mythical Salvador Sanchez -- and he didn't intend to lose this one. The Ring Magazine gave this fight one of its year-ender awards. Guess which one.
