Professional Accomplishments

Floyd Mayweather would go on to win titles at Super Featherweight, Lightweight, and Super Lightweight. He is currently 34-0 and generally regarded as one of the finest fighters of today.

David Reid won the WBA Light Middleweight title in 1999 after only 12 fights. He would make two defenses before losing the title to Felix Trinidad. After suffering from a detached retina, his career faltered. He won three more times before losing to Sam Hill. Reid then decided to call it quits in 2001 with a record of 17-2(7).

Antonio Tarver would go on to defeat Roy Jones Jr. and claim the world Light Heavyweight crown. After losing the crown to Glen Johnson, he regained it in his next fight. He is currently 23-3.
