Roberto Duran vs. Iran Barkley

February 24, 1989

On this day in fistiana, Roberto Duran was reborn to great violence in his surprise drubbing of the bigger and dangerous Iran Barkley in Atlantic City, NJ. At 37 years old, Duran was making his 92nd time through the ropes as a pro, against the six foot one inch, 28 year old Barkley. The result was one of the great brawls of the eighties.
