EVANDER HOLYFIELD vs. RIDDICK BOWE (1) Budweiser 

Description : Here we have an original Budweiser main event Mirage PPv fight sponsors poster from November 13, 1992 for the WBA, WBC and IBF Heavyweight championships held at the Thomas & Mac Centre, Las Vegas Nevada.

In what would become one of the greatest heavyweight boxing matches of all time, Bowe defeated Holyfield by unanimous decision, winning all three judge's scorecards by scores of 117–110, 117–110 and 115–112. Though he had been a 7–5 favorite, Holyfield had difficulty trading punches with the bigger, stronger and younger Bowe, Bowe landed 53% of his 248 thrown punches while Holyfield only managed to land 39% of his 161 thrown. The fight is perhaps best known for its round 10. In round 10 Bowe came out strong, hitting Holyfield with several powerful combinations. Holyfield, however, was able to weather the storm and dominated the second half of the round, landing several combinations of his own. Bowe would dominate round 11, however, hitting an exhausted Holyfield with even more combinations eventually hitting Holyfield with a right hook before knocking Holyfield down with a right hand to the side of the head. Though announcer Jim Lampley claimed it would "seem like a miracle" for Holyfield to finish the round, Holyfield somehow managed to survive the remainder of the round. Knowing he was behind in the scorecards and would need a knockout to win the fight, Holyfield was aggressive in round 12, Bowe was able to withstand Holyfield's offense throughout the round and was named the new Heavyweight Champion of the World via unanimous decision | judge: Chuck Giampa 112-115 | judge: Jerry Roth 110-117 | judge: Dalby Shirley 110-117.
