On This Day: June 26th

2010: John Duddy took on Julio Cesar Chavez Jr at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. The PPV stadium bout, the last fight of Duddy’s career, ended in a unanimous decision loss (120-108, 117-111, 116-112) after a very entertaining clash.

2004: Jamie Moore lost his Commonwealth light middleweight title in his first defence to Ghanaian Ossie Duran at the Kings Hall in Belfast via a shock third round knockout.
