KOTV Classics Boxing - Episode 27

First stop in this edition of KOTV Classics is 2003 when American heavyweight Joe Mesi was undefeated in 27 and looking to earn a title shot. So where better to stake his claim than Madison Square Garden against countryman Monte 'Two Gunz' Barrett who a few years earlier had taken Wladimir Klitschko 7 rounds. In 2007 Vadim Tokarev was coming off a first career defeat to Marco Huck in a world title eliminator.
