Palazzetto dello Sport
Great fight here between the former 147lb world champion (Rodriguez) and the 160lb world champion (Benvenuti). Both men were known for their rilvaries with Emile Griffith with Rodriguez figthing him 4 times and Benvenuti fighting him 3 times and were set to meet in a much anticipated superfight. Both men were slick fighters, not big punchers but hard wrokers to the point where most guys wouldbreak under the pressure. Great fight, with a classic ending, worth the watch. Enjoy!
