Review: 2002-08-17, Joan Guzman vs Fabio Daniel Oliva was one of the best boxing fights of 2002. Both boxers were undefeated and had a similar record, Guzman 17-0-0, while 18-0-0 for Oliva, but the former had already fought for international titles and outside his home country, instead Oliva had never fought outside Argentina, this match was his first time. Joan Guzman vs Fabio Daniel Oliva was valid for the vacant WBO super bantamweight title and it was an exciting fight with a quick knockout in the third round. Watch the video!
LAST 4 & 5 STARS FIGHTS:
Review: 2002-06-08, Lennox Lewis vs Mike Tyson was probably the most important fight in the heavyweight division of the new millennium. Lennox Lewis was the champion (WBC, IBF and IBO) and he had lost twice in his career (with Oliver McCall and Hasim Rahman) but he always managed to take his revenge. Even Mike Tyson had already lost, once against Buster Douglas and twice with Evander Holyfield, Tyson’s career was already in decline, in fact he didn’t fight for a world title for five years. Lennox Lewis vs Mike Tyson was certainly one of the best boxing fights of 2002. Watch the video!
