Official Decision: Ref Davey Pearl halts the contest after the third brutal knockdown of Marciano.

Coxs Comments: Tyson just out-gunned the smaller Marciano. At the opening bell the two men collided at ring center and it was apparent Tyson was the stronger man. A rocking right hand by Tyson to the jaw sends Marciano down on the seat of his pants. He is up at 4 and appears unhurt at first. They exchange some hard body shots up close. A crunching right uppercut catches Marciano in his crouch and straightens him up. He is hurt and is against the ropes. A brutal Tyson right to the body, right uppercut combination has him in serious trouble, a left hook, right cross combination has him down. Marciano is really hurt but shows true heart and courage pulling himself up at 8. Tyson sensing the quick kill snaps Marciano's head back with a shotgun jab. A hammering hook has Marciano trying to clinch. Another smashing uppercut sends him down on his back. The Ref doesn't bother to count in waving the match off.

Official Decision: Ref Art Mercante counts out Foreman in the sixth round.

Cox's Comments: This was thought to be a very dangerous fight for JL and the pre-fight analysts were right. The difference in the match proved to be Louis hand speed and the fact that Foreman threw wide looping punches, while Louis threw dynamite shots that often travelled only a few inches. Louis made George pay for his mistakes but not without a price. Both men landed serious punches in a viscious war. Louis controlled the temo early with a powerful jab. He was cautious the first 2 rounds, ducking, slipping, blocking, and parrying many of George's wild shots and countering with crushing blows of his own. The fireworks began in round 3 when George caught Louis with a hard right to the head that dropped him for a flash knockdown. A fight erupted in the center of the ring that brought the crowd to its feet. Both men were wobbled by powerful punches. This was George round but it was also the beginning of the end. Louis punished George with jabs early in round 4 then exploded with a destructive straight right with speed (that Ali proved George could be nailed with), a flurry of devasting punches sent George to the canvas. He got up but lost his confidence. In the fifth Louis began to back George up with the jab and landing some fast right hands. Another viscious exchange broke out in ring center that had both men wobbling back to their corner at the bell. In the fateful 6th Louis caught a slowing Foreman with a short right hand to the chin as he was trying to clinch. The punch travelled only a few inches but landed with the force of a rocket. Foreman crashed in a heap to the canvas. He was counted out.

Official Decision: Ref Dick Young counts out Johnson in the 5th round.

Coxs Comments: Johnson was the prefight favorite of the majority of the sportswriters of history. At first they looked correct. Johnson was able to negate Lewis powerful jab the first couple of rounds with some impressive defense. He also was able to anticipate Lewis strong right. Johnson neutralized Lewis on the outside then slipped inside where most of the fighting occured. Both men landed with strong body punches. Johnson was able to get in and score and get out. As the rounds progressed however it became clear he wasn't really comfortable fighting this type of fight as Lennox just appeared too strong on the inside. By the 4th Lewis jab started to find its mark and Johnson tried to move in and finish Lennox with a flurry of fast punches. Lennox covered up well though on the inside ala his fights with Holyfield. In the fifth a hard right uppercut violently snapped Johnsons head back and his kness buckled. He went back to the ropes where he covered up as Lennox concentrated a hard body attack. Johnson managed a sharp right counter near the end of the round that seemed to turn the tide for a moment. Lennox was able to take the smaller mans punches well however. Lennox began to take control from the outside with his jab in the sixth as Johnson was not doing well on the inside exchanges and became more and more reluctant. Then in the 7th Lewis landed a blinding left and caught Johnson with his best right hand on the chin with crunching power! Johnson fell flat on his back! He could not beat the count.

Jack Dempsey Tko 12 James J. Jeffries

Official Decision: Ref Frank Cappucino halts the contest at 2:08 of the 12th round in favor of Dempsey.

Coxs Comments: This was a highly anticipated match by many of the old-timers. Jeffries was the visibly bigger man at 6'2 1/2" 218 pounds to Dempsey's 6'1" 192 pounds. Both men looked in good shape. At the bell both men circled each other cautiously for a few moments. Jeff landed a pair of jabs, and Dempsey landed a strong jab in return as he moved in. Then the collision began. There were fierce exchanges on the inside where the maulers quicker hands immediately became a factor. A crashing right that would have dropped most men smacked against Big Jeffs jaw. The fight soon began to look like Jeff's fights against the rugged Tom Sharkey with Dempsey swarming over him. Jeff was able to take Dempsey's blow well but was beat to the punch on most occassions. In the 3rd Dempsey had his best round of the fight catching Jeff with a sizzling right cross to the chin that buckled him momentarily. Jeff was visibly hurt and Dempsey went all out for the attack hammering his man with both hands. Jeff's strength and ability to absorb punishment allowed him to survive but he was the worst for it. After 4 rounds Dempsey had built a nice lead but had failed to gain a knockout. Both of Jeffries eyes were marked. In the fifth Jeff landed his best counter-left hook flush on Dempsey's chin and he was hurt! Jeff tried to finish Jack right there but the Mauler tied him up inside and survived a rough round for him. In the 6th they exchanged hard punches up close as Jeff could not keep Dempsey at bay with his jab. Both men landed terrific left hooks to the body this round and they clinched. By the 7th the pace has slowed considerably. In the 8th Jeff was the aggressor as Dempsey circled and showed some boxing skills ducking, and going to the body. Jeff won this round on sheer aggression as the larger man tried to impose his will on Dempsey. In the 9th both men began to exchange and Dempsey gained the upper hand again with his greater hand speed. A wicked left hook by Dempsey this time knocked out Jeff's mouthpiece, a roundhouse right also staggered him. Both men looked for a knockout in the 10th. This was one of the best action rounds of the fight both men going toe to toe. Dempsey had his head snapped back by an uppercut and he appeared to be in trouble. Just as Jeff moved in to finish him Dempsey came roaring back with a whopping left-right combination that stopped Jeff in his tracks. Dempsey then opened up with a flurry of punches that had Jeff reeling at the bell. The crowd was on its feet screaming in approval. In the 11th Dempsey charged at Jeff with a pair of strong jabs, and took one in return. Dempsey was now clearly the aggressor. Dempsey was forcing the fight inside and simply outworking Big Jeff at this range. There are some heavy body shots scored inside by both men. The pace continues in the 12th when Dempsey lands a crunching jab-hook-cross combination that staggers Jeff near the ropes. Jeff tries to counter but Dempsey is too quick for him and hammers him with another explosive right to the jaw that lands with tremendous force. Jeff's knees buckle. Dempsey sensing the kill goes all out he digs a double hook under and over to the head and body. Jeff is careening against the ropes and looks ready to go. Oh, a smashing uppercut by Dempsey violently snaps back Jeffs head and his eyes roll back in his head but he won't go down! Dempsey turns to get an angle on Jeff and lands a whistling right cross to the jaw. What is keeping Jeff up? Dempsey lets loose a flurry of blows that is reminescent of the flurry that Ray Mercer hit Tommy Morrison with, except Jeff remains upright. Mercilessly Ref Frank Cappucino rushes in to stop the fight.


There are now 5 Fighters left. Ali (who had a bye this round), Louis, Dempsey, Lewis, and Tyson.
