On this day in fistiana...

Jose Luis Ramirez vs. Pernell Whitaker 1

March 12, 1988

On this day in 1988 Pernell Sweet Pea Whitaker challenged for the WBC Lightweight Title of Jose Luis Ramirez and it looked to many that Whitaker won it, but not to the officials scoring the bout. Two of the three judges saw Ramirez as the victor and he retained his title via split decision in one of the worst of boxing's many very bad decisions.
