Salvador Sánchez vs. Azumah Nelson
July 21st, 1982
The Great and unforgettable Salvador Sánchez retained his featherweight crown defeating fledgling fighter, but brilliant Champion in the making Azumah Nelson at Madison Square Garden, New York. It ended on the button at one minute and 49 seconds of the fifteenth round. The Referee was Tony Pérez. The Judges were Tony Castellano, Al Reid and Artie Aidala. Sadly, this was Sal’s final fight. He died aged just 24 in a car accident on the Toluca highway.
