Description : Try finding one of these! Here we have a mega rare original full size HBO boxing closed circuit poster from February 20, 1999 when Felix Trinidad defended the welterweight championship against ring legend Pernell Whitaker, winning the fight by unanimous decision in a contest that marked his thirteenth successful defense.

The fight began with both boxers displaying aggressive styles, which included excessive pushing. In the following rounds both boxers used their jabs most of the time with Trinidad gaining an advantage when Whitaker attempted to attack inside, eventually scoring a knockdown in round two. In the 4th, 5th and 6th rounds the fighters exchanged combinations. Later in the fight both boxers fell to the floor in what were ruled as "accidental slips. In the seventh round Whitaker stepped up offense, trading power punches with Trinidad, but the champion retained control in the fight's tempo during the 8th, 9th, and 10th rounds. In the last round Whitaker, with a badly swollen right eye, displayed a purely defensive stance, avoiding his opponent throughout the round while Trinidad continued on the offensive until the fight concluded. The judges gave the champion scores of 117-111, 118-109 and 118-109. This fight was the case of the 'Old passing the torch to the 'New.

On June 4, 2014, Trinidad will be inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame, thus becoming the tenth Puerto Rican to receive such an honor.
