Carlos Zárate vs Lupe Pintor II (Rematch)
After a memorable match surrounded by controversy, Zárate was eager to settle the score, but the fight never happened. Devastated by the decision, Zarate would retire from boxing for seven years.
Ricardo “Finito” López vs Jorge “Travieso” Arce
The then young rising star Arce wanted López, putting his undefeated record in trouble, but it was a little too late. López never faced him and retired with his mythical undefeated record.
Baby Arizmendi vs Kid Azteca
Baby Arizmendi, Kid Azteca and Rodolfo “Chango” Casanova were the three Mexican idols of their time. Casanova fought both, but they never faced each other.
Ruben Olivares vs Vicente Saldivar
Two of the best of all time. Though Olivares fought mostly at bantamweight, he was also a featherweight world champion. Sadly, by the time he jumped to 126 pounds, it was too late. Different eras, I would say. There was a time when negotiations for this fight took place, but Saldivar’s manager declined to make it happen.
