Roger Mayweather vs Harold Brazier
Harold Brazier, in his biggest fight to date, had the champion Mayweather practically out on his feet in rounds just about every one of the last four rounds. However, Brazier never followed up and finished Mayweather. Later stated by the unsuccessful challenger Brazier, "I had him in the palm of my hands." But it was Mayweather who battled back ferociously enough from those poundings to gain a victory. However, Brazier nevertheless made a great showing and he soon received a second shot at a world title, this time against Juan Martin Coggi, which he lost in more convincing fashion.
