Description : Here we have an original official onsite boxing fight poster for the WBC world featherweight title bout. National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, West Midlands, United Kingdom. 12th October 1985.

What a nightmare night in Birmingham for England's Pat Cowdell, when he challenged "The terrible warrior" Azumah Nelson for the WBC featherweight title. Azumah Nelson knocked out Pat Cowdell in the 1st round with an uppercut from hell, Pat Cowdell had previously taken the great Salvador Sanchez the full 15 rounds but had no answer to the devastating power of Nelson who took his time just stalking Pat Cowdell until the opportunity presented itself to unleash that devastating KO blow....BOOM! Pat remained ironed out on the canvas as the referee reached the count of ten. Cowdell was unconscious in the ring for several minutes following the bout before eventually being roused to his feet.

Nelson post fight ring quote: "I came in to knock him out in the first round. I made my mind up because the people here didn't treat us good. They were making all kinds of words to get the title from us, but I want to prove to them I'm the best in the world and I want (Barry) McGuigan. I will knock him out anywhere I fight him. I'm ready to fight McGuigan anytime, any day, anywhere... McGuigan is good but the way McGuigan fights there is no way he can beat me. There is no way McGuigan can go four rounds with me... I took the title from a young man and any old man that wants to challenge me then hey I'm here." - Azumah Nelson in the ring televised post-fight interview.
