Review: 7th August 2004, Acelino “Popo” Freitas defended his WBO lightweight title (won against Artur Grigorian a few months earlier) versus Diego “Chico” Corrales. Freitas was undefeated in 35 fights and was a very dangerous boxer for his speed, but Corrales was not an easy opponent, since he had suffered just two defeats against boxers like Floyd Mayweather Jr and Joel Casamayor (then Corrales won the rematch with Casamayor). For Corrales was his first world fight in the lightweight division but his pressing and heavy punches were impressive… Watch the video!
