Saman Sorjaturong (26-2-1, 21 KOs)
vs. Humberto "Chiquita" Gonzalez (43-2, 31 KOs)
July 15, 1995, Great Western Forum, Inglewood, Calif.
Humberto "Chiquita" Gonzalez avenged a 1993 loss to the great Michael Carbajal by taking away his WBC and IBF light flyweight belts in the rematch a year later. He successfully defended that world title four times -- including another win over Carbajal -- before putting it on the line against power-punching Saman Sorjaturong, whose only big-league fight had been a second-round TKO loss to Ricardo Lopez. What some expected to be a mismatch turned into The Ring Magazine's "Fight of the Year" for 1995.
