5 Star RatingReview: 2001-07-13, we had rated this fight four stars but after watching it again, thanks to the comments of “Cleming81” and “mattsnow81”, we have changed our rating in five (on February 6, 2015) because Micky Ward vs Emanuel Augustus was an absolute war thanks to a tremendous pace and some amazing exchanges in which both boxers showed huge heart (in the comments you can see how we rate it round by round).
Micky Ward, one of the most popular boxers despite not being very technical, entered this fight with a professional boxing record of 36-10-0 (27 knockouts) while his opponent, Emanuel Augustus Burton, had not an exceptional record, 24-17-4 (12 knockouts) and close his career with 38 victories, 34 defeats and 6 draws but he faced some of the best boxers in those years: John John Molina, Floyd Mayweather Jr, Carlos Wilfredo Vilches, David Diaz, Ruslan Provodnikov, etc. This bout has been the Ring Magazine fight of the year of 2001, but there were other three exciting battles in that year that we rated with five stars: De La Hoya vs Gatti, Wonjongkam vs Tunacao, Pacquiao vs Ledwaba.

  1. I’m at a loss as to why this historic fight is not rated 5 stars. I’ll remember it my whole life if I don’t get Alzeimer!

  2. The scores 98-90 Ward and 96-91 (???) Ward were downright corruption. 96-94 Ward I can live with that, the knockdown really hurt Augustus. I had it 95-94 Augustus.

  3. Can you imagine if Augustus only had a little more punching power?… He would be a hall of famer. Still, he is one in my heart!
