Ike Quartey (34-1-1, 29 KOs)

vs. Fernando Vargas (18-0, 17 KOs)

April 15, 2000 at Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas, Nev.

 Quartey came into this bout bent on redemption after losing a split decision to Oscar De La Hoya six months earlier in a welterweight title bout. He moved up to 154 to take on the undefeated Vargas, who had knocked out all but one of his previous opponents. The tension for this one was palpable.
