On this Day in Fistiana…
Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Angel Manfredy
December 19, 1998
Fifteen years ago today Floyd Mayweather used blazing hand speed and accurate punching to make short work of challenger Angel Manfredy. Quick stoppages seemed to be the theme of the night on this card in Atlantic City as both the co-features were halted pre-maturely by the referee, although Tua-Rahman 1 was far more egregious than this one. Here, Manfredy was clearly stunned and soon to be stopped when the ref intervened.
