Heavyweight boxing is considered the sport's crown jewel or pinnacle, but fight fans are used to sacrificing activity rate and sometimes nuance for the chance at seeing a big heavyweight taken down. Ike Ibeabuchi and David Tua combined to throw 1,730 punches against one another in 1997, however, and it was the kind of fight fans still talk about 25 years later.

A relatively sparse crowd in Sacramento watched as Ibeabuchi and Tua beat each other up. On this episode of the Knuckles and Gloves podcast, Patrick Connor and Brin-Jonathan Butler gave the fight another watch and offered up some background.
