As many of you know I run universes on the OOTP boards on a regular basis. I have decided to sim a series of dream fights exclusive to this forum. So, if you, the gentle reader have a fight you'd like to see me sim, OR if you'd like to post your own dream fights on this thread to join in, feel free!
Willie Pep vs Salvador Sanchez
Posted: Mon 09 Dec, 2013 6:51 am
Salvador Sanchez was dominant in his short career, cut short in 1982 when he died in a car crash. His career ended with a 44-1-1 (32) record with wins over Danny "Little Red" Lopez to earn the title, and defeated the likes of Wilfredo Gomez and Azumah Nelson before his accident.
Willie Pep Is considered by most as the greatest Featherweight of all time. His wars with Sandy Saddler are legendary. After winning the title at the tender young age of 20 over Chalky Wright, he went on to record a record of 229-11-1 (65) and was known as the "Will o' the Wisp" due to his defensive prowess.
All fights in this series will be fought over 15 rounds, will use the Unified rules, with a Draw untio round 4 end, then to the score cares in case of an accidental butt. Three judges,the 10 point must system will be used with no three knockdown rule no mandatory 8 count and no being saved by the bell. Only the referee may stop the bout. The computer will handle strategies for both fighters. All fights that I sim in this series will be held at the venerable Madison Square Gardens, the Mecca of Boxing. The judges and referees will be random in all fights.

Carlos Zarate vs Jeff Fenech
Posted: Sat 14 Dec, 2013 2:30 am
It is well known that most consider Eder Jofre to be the greatest Bantamweight of all time, and perhaps the greatest pound for pound fighter as well.
What isn't known, is who was the greatest Slugger of all time in the Bantamweight division. Both Zarate and Fenech are rated 12's and were known for their terrifying power. While they met once, with Fenech winning, it was near the end of Zarate's stellar career. In this sim they will both be at the zenith of their careers for this bout.

Jeff Fenech finished his career with a 29-3-1 (21) record and held the IBF Bantamweight title, WBC Super Bantamweight title as well as the WBC Featherweight Title. He fought a trilogy with another great, Azumah Nelson that saw both men with a win, and a draw as well.
