Johnny Tapia vs Johnny Romero (Entire Fight)
I remember this fight well. This was a true crosstown rivalry for Albuquerque, New Mexico. This is the fight that made a believer out of me when it came to Johnny Tapia. I was, to some small degree, leaning toward Danny Romero but I was just looking for a good fight. Romero made a fight out it but Tapia seized the moment and stepped up to dominate the fight and win the battle for Albuquerque. Tapia went on to have an outstanding career but this is the fight that brought him national and international prominence. Rest in Peace Champ! You will be missed.
