On June 15, 1991, at the Hemisfair Arena in San Antonio, Robert Quiroga defended his IBF super flyweight title with a brutal and bloody 12 round unanimous decision over "Kid" Akeem Anifowoshe. Anifowoshe collapsed after the fight with a blood clot on the brain. He would never fight again. The fight was named Ring Magazine Fight of the Year.
