Mayweather vs Augustus was the main event of the evening; after twelve years, in 2012, Mayweather said Augustus was the toughest fighter he had faced:”I’m going to rate Emanuel Augustus first compared to all the guys that I’ve faced…He didn’t have the best record in the sport of boxing, he has never won a world title, but he came to fight.” Watch the video and rate this fight!

2001 best BOXING fight – Micky Ward vs Emanuel Augustus – full fight Video

foty-2001-ward-vs-augustus-burton

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.
