This one's also on YouTube, the last fight Carter gave Aragon a terrible beating over 15 mostly one-sided rounds.

Boxing Purist's picture

Aragon put up a proud effort and fought with his heart and soul but in the end he was in the ring with a all time great and superior fighter, not too mention a naturally much bigger man. Despite the result never being in question with Basilio winning every frame Aragon really showed his worth and had his own moments in the contest.
