Trinis fighting for world titles in the 90s
« on: February 06, 2012, 09:01:34 AM »
Three Trinidadians fought for world titles in the 1990s.

Who were they, who did they fight and which world titles?

These are men, limited to the WBC/WBA/WBO/IBF titles.

Tallest you may attempt. :)

No they are regional titles; eg. Intercontinental (originall) meant the American continent, Leslie Stewart won one of these around 1985.

My apologies, I made a mistake with the dates, so I'll just give the answers.

Nick Rupa did fight for the WBC/IBF Lt. Mddle title in 1997 vs. Terry Norris.

Mistake was Leslie Stewart fought Michael Moorer for the WBO Lt. Hvy title in 1989 not 1990.
And Syd Vanderpool fought Bernard Hopkins for the Middlweight title in 2000, not the late 90s as I had thought.
