Robert Quiroga vs Akeem Anifowoshe
IBF super flyweight title
Ring Magazine 1991 Fight Of The Year
San Antonio, Texas
One of the bloodiest battles of the 90's earning FOTY in 1991. Undefeated champion Quiroga was making his 3rd defence of his 115lb title against undefeated power puncher and slick boxer Akeem Anifowoshe who came into the bout having KO'ed 18 of his 23 opponents and was riding a 11 fight KO streak. The fight is all action from the first bell to the last. Marred with tragedy as Anifowoshe collapsed after the victor was announced, having to retire from boxing and subsequently dying back in his native Nigeria.
