Julio Cesar Gonzalez vs Julian Letterlough
Light Heavyweights, 12 Rounds
February 2, 2001 - Celeste Center, Columbus, Ohio
An ESPN2 Friday Night Fights main event, this battle of unbeaten 175-pounders is for standing with both the WBC and WBO, in the division ruled by Roy Jones Jr, the world’s best pound-for-pound fighter. Gonzalez, 25, enters with a record of 25-0, while the 31-year-old Letterlough comes in at 15-0-1, all of his wins by way of knockout.
Jorge Arce vs Hussein Hussein
Flyweights, 12 Rounds
March 19, 2005 - MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada
Long running 108-pound titleholder Arce, a 25-year-old action star from Mexico, takes on once-beaten Australian Hussein Hussein, 29, in a WBC flyweight eliminator. Hussein (27-1) has only fallen against the great Pongsaklek Wonjongkam in 2003, while Arce (38-3-1) is riding an 18-fight win streak.
Aaron Pryor vs Alexis Argüello
Junior Welterweights, 15 Rounds
November 12, 1982 - Orange Bowl, Miami, Florida
The WBA championship is on the line at 140 pounds, as Pryor, 27, defends against Argüello, 30, in a matchup of explosive punchers with skills. Nicaragua’s Argüello (72-5) has gone undefeated since 1978, a stretch of 16 fights, while winning and defending titles at super featherweight and lightweight. Pryor (31-0) scored a knockout over Antonio Cervantes in 1980, and has made five successful defenses since then, mostly recently four months prior against then-unbeaten Akio Kameda in his hometown of Cincinnati.
