Description : Here we have a Ring Magazine special 8 page fold out poster for the SuperFight of 1993 from the Alamodome Texas.

After a division record 18 consecutive defenses of his light welterweight title, Chavez (87-0) moved up one more weight division to challenge Pernell Whitaker (32-1) for his WBC Welterweight title in September 1993. Since the late 1980s, Chavez stated several times that he wanted a fight against Whitaker. The Whitaker team, among them Lou Duva, told to Ring Magazine that they did not want a fight against Chavez in those days. In the eyes of many experts, Whitaker waited for Chavez to age. The result of the fight was a controversial majority draw, allowing Chavez to remain undefeated with Whitaker retaining his title. Various members of the American media, including The Ring Magazine and Sports Illustrated, were critical of the decision. Sports Illustrated put Pernell Whitaker on the cover of its next magazine with a one word title, "Robbed!" Chavez stated after the fight: "I felt I was forcing the fight ... he just kept holding me too much, he was throwing too many low blows too. There was no rematch.
