Now this is boxing! At the time it was called the best first round in boxing history. Until Hears-Hagler three years later. Watch Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini win the WBA Lightweight Champion against Arturo Frias in Las Vegas on 5-8-82. Frias tags Ray early and and Ray ends up demolishing him. Cool reaction from Ray's dad Lenny too. Be sure to check out the post fight interview below. It includes a very cool shout out to Youngstown. This is why he is still Mr. Youngstown! When we we down because of the mills closing, he gave us something to be excited about.
Check out the post fight interview below. It starts at about 2:20 in.
