FULL ALEXIS ARGUELLO-ANDY GANIGAN FIGHT FROM CBS TV
San Francisco, CA- Sitting ringside at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas, the chick I was with, the former Maria Ramirez, dumped Coca Cola and popcorn on me when Alexis Arguello got knocked down. One of the greatest fighters in the history of the sport, Arguello said that although he was dropped by Ganigan, the hardest he had ever been hit in his life, Aaron Pryor included, was from Andy Ganigan in round three. This takes you back to a time when a $50 ticket was the best seat in the house! Both men are dead as Andy died in 2011 from an unprovoked attack and Arguello, suicide or murder, died in 2009.
FIGHT POSTER AND YOUR COMMENTS
Here is the official fight poster for the May 1982 fight that was the last fight for Alexis before he would lose to Pryor in November of that year. Ganigan, one of the hardest punchers ‘pound for pound’ so says Ring Magazine, had recently knocked out Sean O’Grady in two rounds.
