Riddick Bowe strengthened his claim of being the best heavyweight in the world #OnThisDay in 1995 with a devastating performance against Jorge Luis Gonzalez at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas..
Brooklyn-born Bowe battered the undefeated Cuban for five rounds and then blasted him out with a right to the head in the sixth round to retain his WBO heavyweight crown.
“I’m sorry for him,” Bowe said. “I’m not mad anymore.”
It was sweet revenge for Bowe, who had been knocked down and beaten by Gonzalez in the Pan American Games in Indianapolis back in 1987. Gonzalez also beat Lennox Lewis in the same competition.

A post shared by Boxing News (@boxingnewsonline) on

George Foreman ended the career of Joe Frazier in five rounds at the Nassau Coliseum in New York #OnThisDay in 1976 when referee Harold Valan stopped the fight on a plea from Eddie Futch in Frazier’s corner.
Fitch jumped on the apron where Valan was concluding the eight count on a battered and bleeding Frazier who sagged against the ropes after the second knockdown of the round.
Frazier had given the fans three surprises in this battle of former heavyweight kings.
The first was his weight of 224 1/2lbs – 10 1/2lbs more than when he was stopped in two rounds by George in 1973.
The second was his shaven head, which he later referred to post-fight by calling himself Black Kojak.
He shaved his head following the weigh-in. “I don’t know why, I just do some crazy things.”
And third, he did what we all thought he couldn’t do – change his style. Retreating, weaving, backing against the ropes and trying to counter Foreman.
Joe said afterwards: “The time has come for me to hang up my gloves and turn to other things.“
“I fooled everyone who said I couldn’t change my style”
“He’s the most courageous man I ever saw in the ring,” said Foreman “Once I have a man hurt he doesn’t get away.”
Frazier made a brief one-fight comeback in 1981 when he battled to a 10-round draw with Floyd “Jumbo” Cummings.
