    I have watched Nelson vs Fenech (1) many times over the years and i can never see Fenech as the winner. I have always seen the fight how the judges did, a draw. Their rematch turned out to be embarrassing for Fenech as Nelson walked through him. Nelson was suffering from a very serious illness only a week or two before their first fight. which seems to be the reason for his lethargic performance in their first bout. Azumah Nelson was a great great fighter.
