Oh damn, this is the fight that made boxing switch from 15 to 12 rounds for championship fights.

The ref deducted a point from Kim in the 10th round, should be a 10-8 because Mancini won the round besides the deduction.

Sadly, as many probably already know, Kim passed away after this fight. He fought not only bravely, but held his own for much of the fight against the relentless Boom Boom. Contrary to some opinions I heard before watching this fight for myself, referee Richard Greene didn't do anything obviously wrong. Interestingly, besides this fight triggering the change from 15 to 12 round championship fights, it also triggered the change from same-day to next-day weigh ins. A policy that is being re-challenged by some of the "talking-heads" of the sport today. They would be wise to review the original reasons related to giving the body time to re-hydrate, on why the change to a 24-hour weigh-in was made.

Very good point, and if two fighters have worked down to make a weight, the same weight, there should be no complaints in my opinion. Young fighters, in particular, need to understand heo dangerous it is to try to fight natural size, Diego De La Hoya passed out trying to make a weight he should move up from, Higa failed weight and still might have been drained, and I think Munguia should move up to 160 ASAP.
I was not aware that this fight was what started the 24 hour rehydration.
