Ray Actis (USA) UD 10 Holly Mims (USA)

The two rematchs:

PRELIMINARY ROUND REPLAYS

Dick Hall UD 10 Henry Hall
Tessman UD 10 McTigue

A bit surprising to see McTigue – rated two levels higher – go out to Tessman in the replay. Also, Eddie Mustafa Muhammad’s one-and-done was a minor shocker, but Eddie will have another crack at the ATG CW tournament. One “5” rated guy (Yawe Davis) survives to the first round proper, where his reward will, of course, be a match with the #1 seed.

First Round, Top Quarter

Ezzard Charles (1) TKO 10 Yawe Davis

Top seed Charles takes on the lowest rated boxer remining in the field, the overmatched Davis. After taking a few rounds to settle in, Charles floors Davis with a big shot in round four. Swelling around Davis’ right eye had become a problem, and a Charles uppercut sends Davis to the canvas for a second time midway through round five. Davis offers little resistance the rest of the way, and the end comes after two more KDs by Charles leading to a final round stoppage.

Battling Levinsky TKO 7 Dick Tiger

Tiger starts well, winning the exchanges in the opening two rounds. Then, in round three, Levinksy opens a cut over the left eye of Tiger. More trouble for the Nigerian boxer when a second cut is opened in round five, this one under the right eye. Despite an early points edge at the halfway point (49-47, according to the unofficial card), Tiger must be wary of the possibility of a cuts stoppage. The cut over the left eye is re-opened in round six, and then it becomes serious, leading to a stoppage after being re-opened a second time. Levinksy is declared a TKO victor despite howls of protest from Tiger’s corner.

Philadelphia Jack O’Brien UD 10 Henry Maske


O’Brien pulls in front with a big round two. Kind of a boring bout with two defensive-minded boxers. O’Brien’s early lead translates into a points edge (49-47 on the unofficial card) at the midway point. O’Brien continues to impress, keeping his opponent off balance, and – despite a momentary setback when he suffers a cut nose in round nine -- manages to the points win (by scores of 97-94, 96-94, 96-95).

Joe Knight (16) UD 10 Merqui Sosa

Knight, the seeded fighter, gets off to a good start, and there is swelling around Sosa’s left eye as early as round two. Another big round in the fifth, and Knight holds a solid points lead (49-46 on the unofficial card) at the midway point. Sosa offers little to threatened Knight the rest of the way, and it is a solid points win for the #16 seed (99-92, 99-92, 98-93).

Maxie Rosenbloom (9) UD 10 George Gardner

“Slapsie Maxie” takes on Gardner, a rugged LH from the early years of the division. Rosenbloom piles up sufficient points for a comfortable early lead (49-46 at the halfway point, according to the unofficial scorer at ringside). The rest of the bout proceeds without incident, and the points win goes to Rosenbloom (by scores of 99-91, 98-93, 99-91).

Joe Choynski KO 9 Dwight Qawi

The bout is close through the early rounds. Slight edge to Choynski after a big round three, and Joe holds a narrow edge on the unofficial card (48-47) after five. The bout remains highly competitive into the final rounds, but then Qawi gets careless, walking into a Choynski cross in round nine, and going down as a result. He arises, but Choynski follows with an uppercut that puts Qawi down for the count. Qawi is slated to make another appearance in the ATG CW tourney.

Harry Matthews UD 10 Leo Houck

Another bout between a pair of evenly matched LHs. Matthews gradually gains the upper hand, winning rounds three through five to forge a points lead (49-46 on the unofficial card) at the halfway point. Solid effort by Matthes, who does just enough to take a narrow points win (by scores of 97-94, 96-95, 97-94).

Jack Dillon (8) UTD 6 Dennis Andries

Dillon, the seeded fighter, struggles in the early going, and he sustains a worrying cut on his forehead in round three. Good cornerwork patches up the cut, and a couple of good rounds from Dillon give him an early points lead (49-46, on the unofficial card at the halfway mark). However, the cut is reopened and round six, leading to a stoppage. Because it was ruled the result of an accidental butt, the scorecards after five determine the result and, as all three agree with the unofficial scorer (all are 49-46 in Dillon’s favor), Dillon is declared the winner.

First Round, Second Quarter

Tommy Loughran (4) UD 10 Bob Murphy

Not much in the way of excitement as Loughran totally outclasses his opponent, piling up an early points lead (49-46 on the unofficial card) by the midway point. A game Murphy manages to last the distance, but it is a very comfortable points win for Loughran (99-94, 98-94, 97-94) who advances, as expected.

Len Harvey MD 10 Michael Moorer

Harvey comes out swinging, and he manages to rock Moorer with some good shots in the opening few rounds. Moorer does better in round three, but Harvey’s solid defense enables the Brit to pull ahead at the midway point (by a count of 49-47, on the unofficial card). Moorer finds some reserves and lands some punishing blows in round eight, causing puffiness to appear around the right eye of Harvey. Despite the late surge, Harvey hangs on to take a narrow points win (97-93, 95-95, 96-94), although one judge saw it even. Moorer will be back in action once the ATG HW tournament kicks off.

Matthew Saad Muhammad UD 10 Glencoffe Johnson

Close match with little to choose between the two through the first five rounds (after which the unofficial scorer called it 49-47 for Muhammad). Johnson suffered a cut under his right eye in round five, and MSM targets the cut, causing the eye to begin to swell in round six. In the final rounds, Muhammad began to wear down a tired and weary Johnson, scoring KDs in rounds nine and 10 but not managing to put his opponent away. Solid points win (scores of 98-91, 97-91, 97-92) for Muhammad.

Bob Foster (13) KO 6 Roy Jones Jr.

Probably one of the better opening round matchups, with Foster looking good in the first few rounds, but then a strong showing in round five put Jones in command (by a count of 48-47 on the unofficial card) at the halfway point. Foster, battling a rapidly swelling left eye, found the range with a short, clean combination that put Jones down for the count with just seconds remaining in round six.

Tommy Gibbons (12) UD 10 Anton Christoforidis


Christoforidis proves to be a tough opponent for the rugged Gibbons, who takes awhile to get on track. At the midway point of the bout, the unofficial scorer has it even (48-48). In the second half of the bout, Gibbons begins to dominate, dropping Christoforidis with a cross right before the bell in round seven, which saved the Greek fighter from having to beat the count. From then on, Gibbons adopted a defensive posture which was enough to secure the points win (the judges had it 95-94, 95-94, 96-93, all for Gibbons).

Prince Charles Williams SD 10 Bob Fitzsimmons

“Ruby Robert” took command midway through round three, decking Williams with a powerful hook; Williams continued, after taking an eight count, but also was troubled by some puffiness around his right eye. A couple of solid rounds from Williams managed to keep the score close (48-46 for Fitzsimmons, according to the unofficial card, after five). In round six, Williams evens the score by decking Fitz with a big cross – one KD apiece. Both men continue to battle until the end, and the judges disagree on the outcome (two going for Williams by scores of 95-94, while a dissenter had it 95-93 for Fitzsimmons.

Lloyd Marshall SD 10 Tony Shucco

Good, close battle. Slight edge to Shucco at the midway point (48-47, on the unofficial scorecard). Big turning point in round six, however, when Marshall decks Shucco with a big hook, and a mouse forms under the right eye of Shucco. In the end, the KD is enough for Marshall to prevail although one judge had it for Shucco (97-93 Marshall, 94-96 Shucco, 96-94 Marshall).

Harry Greb (5) UD 10 Dogomar Martinez

Greb, out to add the ATG LH title to his win in the MW division, presses the action in the early rounds and has a nice points lead at the halfway point (49-47 on the unofficial card which appears to be generous to Martinez). Greb scores the bout’s only KD with an overhand right, early in round nine. By the end of round nine, a dangerous looking mouse appears under the left eye of Martinez, who is literally exhausted by this point. In the end, all three judges agree (all have it 100-89 for Greb).

Now, midway through the opening round proper, and so far, all seeded fighters have advanced.

First Round, Bottom Half

Oops, looks like I messed up and accidentally overwrite notes from the next wave of bouts, so here are just the results; no major upsets, although Bozo beating Bivins was a bit of a surprise.

Billy Conn (6) MD 10 Dick Hall
Antonio Tarver TKO 4 Georges Carpentier
Kid Norfolk UD 10 Darius Michalczewski
Mauro Mina (11) UD 10 Jimmy Adamick
Tommy Yarosz (14) UD 10 Pierre Fourie
Battling Bozo MD 10 Jimmy Bivins
Jose Torres MD 10 Jimmy Slattery
Gene Tunney (3) KO 3 Mark Tessman

And here are the notes from the remainder of the first round bouts, just completed.

Michael Spinks (7) UD 10 Zsolt Erdei

A flurry of activity in the opening round, with most of the exchanges favoring the heavy favorite, Spinks. More heavy leather landed by Spinks in rounds two and third and, by the end of the third, there is a mouse under the left eye of the Hungarian fighter. Huge points lead for Spinks (50-45, on the unofficial card) at the midway point. Erdei tires badly in the second half of the bout and offers little resistance to Spinks, who registers a solid points win (100-90, 99-92, 100-90) in a bout with no cuts or KDs.

Joey Maxim TKO 9 Willie Pastrano

Not much happening until midway through round three, Maxim rips open a cut over Pastrano’s left eye. The cut is in a bad spot, and it continues to ooze blood into round four and is re-opened in round five. Despite the cut, Pastrano clings to a narrow points edge (48-47, according to the unofficial scorer) at the midway point. The cut is finally patched up by round eight, but then, after being re-opened a second time, it results in a TKO stoppage in round nine. Interestingly, at the time of the stoppage, all three judges had scored the bout even (76-all).

Jack Delaney KO 6 Melio Bettina

Close, hard fought encounter from the opening bell. Strong round five, and the unofficial scorer has Delaney ahead (by 49-46) at the halfway point. Then, two-thirds of the way through round six, Delaney drops Bettina with a big shot, and Bettina cannot beat the count.

John Henry Lewis (10) UD 10 Freddie Mills

Lewis emerges on top after a strong round three, following up with an even better showing in round four. This enables Lewis to forge a points lead (49-47, according to the unofficial card) at the halfway point. Mills tires badly in the second half of the bout, and a Lewis combination puts him on the canvas in round eight. Lewis eases up in the later rounds, taking a solid points win (97-92 on all three cards).

Tiger Jack Fox (15) UD 10 Bobby Czyz

Action picks up in round three, when Fox rips open a cut over Czyz’s lip, but then Fox gets careless and goes down in a delayed reaction to a Czyz hook. By the midway point, Fox has regrouped, and the unofficial card shows him with a points lead (48-46) despite the knockdown. In round six, two more KDs as Fox decks Czyz with a hook and then, later in the round, with a cross. Czyz is able to resume and lasts the full 10 rounds, despite the cut being re-opened. However, it goes down as a fairly solid points win for Fox (94-92, 95-91, 94-92) despite the early setback, and a game effort from Czyz.

Harold Johnson DQ 9 Jimmy Slade

Close, hard fought battle, with little to choose in the first half of the bout; slight points edge for Johnson on the unofficial card (49-48) at the midway point, with several rounds too close to call. Heading into the later rounds, Slade is the more active of the two, and also holds a slight stamina edge. The bout comes to a sudden end in round nine, after Slade is called for repeated low blows and then disqualified. However, Johnson was well ahead on points on all three cards and likely to prevail had the bout gone the full distance.

Victor Galindez UD 10 Paul Berlenbach

Good opening round from Berlenbach, who lands sufficient heavy leather to open a cut and some swelling under Galindez’s right eye. In the third round, a gash appears over the left eye of Galindez, this the likely result of an accidental butt. Unofficial card has Galindez ahead (by 49-46) at the midway point. Then, in round six, Berlenbach sustains a cut over his right eye, and a Galindez uppercut puts Berlenbach on the deck. An aggressive Berlenbach steps up the pace in the later rounds, as both men are tired and vulnerable to a knockout. In the end, the points win goes to Galindez, although one judge scored the bout even (96-93 ,95-95, 96-93 were the final scores).

Archie Moore (2) KO 6 Ray Actis

Moore, one of the pre-tournament favorites, takes on Actis, one of the lower rated guys to survive the qualifying and preliminary rounds. Moore attacks on the inside and has the better of it through the first few rounds. Archie builds a solid points lead at the halfway mark (50-45, on the unofficial scorecard). A solid combination from Moore puts Actis down, and Actis barely beats the count, but then Moore connects with a perfect cross and the second KD does the trick, putting Actis down and out.

This question has been asked and answered at least once. I use a formula suggested by original game co-designer Jim Trunzo years ago, in Avalon Hill's All-Star Replay magazine. First you look at the overall boxer rating. Then use the following, in order of preference.

1. Add both Control Factor ratings.
2. Then apply the formula: HP + PL - KDR 1 - KDR 2 - KOR
3. Better defense
4. Better endurance.

That should break most ties. If not, I look at the remaining ratings, including stuff like Killer Instinct. May wind up flipping a coin.

Second Round, Top Half

Some exciting bouts, a couple of upsets and a near-upset or two.

Ezzard Charles (1) UD 10 Battling Levinsky

Charles, the “Cincinnati Cobra,” struggles in the opening rounds as Levinsky proves to pose a stiff challenge. Finally, in round five, Charles gets on track, finding the range with a combination that decks Levinsky for a seven count. Nonetheless, the unofficial scorer has the bout even (47-47) at the midway point. Great effort from Levinsky, but Charles gradually wears him down in the later rounds, as Levinsky suffers the effects of a swollen left eye starting in round eight. Charles goes on to take the points win (96-92, 96-93, 96-93 are the judges’ scores).

Joe Knight (16) UD 10 Philadelphia Jack O’Brien

Fairly evenly matched duo, as O’Brien just missed being seeded. At the halfway point, after a couple of close rounds, the unofficial scorer has O’Brien with a slim points lead (49-48). O’Brien appears to be on his way to a points win when he walks into a cross from Knight and goes down midway through the 10th and final round. This is enough to swing the decision in Knight’s favor (by scores of 96-94, 96-94, 97-93, indicating that the issue was still in doubt headed into the final stanza, despite a solid edge for O’Brien in terms of punches landed).

Maxie Rosenbloom (9) UD 10 Joe Choynski

Action is slow to develop, as Rosenbloom poses a difficult target to hit, but Maxie struggles with his timing in the early going. The bout remains close at the midway point (48-48, on the unofficial card) with no one taking charge. The favorite, Rosenbloom, goes on grind out a narrow points win in a bout that had little excitement to it (all three judges scored it 96-95 for Rosenbloom).

Harry Matthews TKO 6 Jack Dillon (8)

Jack “the Giant Killer” Dillon starts well until he sustains a cut over his right eye in round three. Despite the cut, it’s a solid points lead for Dillon (49-46 on the unofficial card) at the halfway point. However, the cut is reopened a round later, leading to an immediate stoppage, and Matthews advances via the TKO stoppage.

Tommy Loughran (4) TKO 9 Len Harvey

Solid boxing by Loughran, one of the favorites to win the tournament. By the end of round three, sufficient leather has been landed to cause puffiness around the left eye of the Brit, Harvey. More trouble for Harvey in the form of a cut over his right eye in round five. Unofficial scorer still has it close (48-47 for Loughran) at the halfway mark. The cut is reopened in round seven and again in round eight, finally leading to an early end in round nine. A peek at the judges’ cards showed Loughran well ahead on points at the time of the stoppage.

Bob Foster (13) TKO 2 Matthew Saad Muhammad

Foster takes charge early, and he pounds Muhammad into submission in less than two rounds. Impressive performance by Foster.

Tommy Gibbons (12) UD 10 Prince Charles Williams

In round three, Gibbons drops Williams for a nine count. The unofficial card shows a solid lead for Gibbons (49-46) at the halfway point. Not much drama the rest of the way, as Gibbons dominates the action to take a solid points win (99-92, 98-92, 99-92).

Lloyd Marshall UD 10 Harry Greb (5)


Surprisingly slow start by the heavily favored “Human Windmill,” Greb, and Marshall holds a slight lead at the halfway point (48-47, according to the unofficial card). Bruising battle leaves marks, Greb with a mouse under his right eye, Marshall with puffiness under his left eye, as the bout heads to the later rounds. By round nine, Greb’s other eye is beginning to swell. Late surge from Marshall is sufficient to pull off the upset (with identical scores of 96-94 from all three judges).

Second Round, Bottom Half

Billy Conn (6) D 10 Antonio Tarver

Conn’s defensive skills are on display, but Tarver does manage to get in a few good shots on the “Pittsburgh Kid,” and the unofficial scorer has it close (48-47 Conn) at the midway point. In the second half of the bout, Conn continues to struggle with his timing, but Tarver still finds Conn an elusive target as well. So, the bout devolves into a defensive struggle, with no cuts or knockdowns, and – to the surprise of many – the result is a majority draw (two judges had it even, 95-all, while one had it 96-94 for Conn) so it will be re-fought. A peek at the cards shows Tarver with a slim lead headed into the final round, which Conn won to secure the draw and the rematch – another close call for a top seed, and another example indicating inaccuracy on the part of the unofficial scorer at ringside.

Kid Norfolk MD 10 Mauro Mina (11)

Mina faces a strong challenge from the unseeded Norfolk, who is the aggressor through the opening rounds, forging a narrow points edge (48-47 on the unofficial card) at the halfway point. In the later rounds, Norfolk steps up the pace in an effort to complete the upset. Mina rallies to take the final round, but it’s not enough as two judges have Norfolk the winner (by identical counts of 96-94, while a third calls it even, 95-95).

Tommy Yarosz (14) UD 10 Battling Bozo

Yarosz starts well, exhibiting some solid boxing skills and generally frustrating Bozo. He is rewarded with a points advantage at the midway point (49-47 on the unofficial scorecard). In the second half of the bout, Yarosz gives Bozo few openings and gradually wears his opponent down, en route to a fairly comfortable (scores of 98-92, 99-91, 98-92) points win.

Gene Tunney (3) MD 10 Jose Torres

Before his upset win over Jack Dempsey to capture the HW title, Tunney was a competent LH, suffering his only career loss at LH to Harry Greb. Action is slow to develop, but early in round five Tunney puts Torres on the deck with a strong combination. Despite the knockdown, the unofficial card has it even (47-all) at the halfway point. Tunney continues strongly, exhibiting superior stamina as the bout reaches the latter stages. Torres, who tires badly down the stretch, offers little resistance the rest of the way but, again, a minor surprise in the judging as one judge calls it even (95-95) while the other two judges have Tunney winning by a narrow margin (96-94). Torres won the last four rounds on the one judge’s card to secure a draw, but the other judges had Tunney winning two of the last three rounds to secure the points win.

Joey Maxim TKO 9 Michael Spinks (7)

Another tough bout for the higher ranked boxer. After an indifferent start, Spinks becomes more aggressive, forcing the action on the inside. Solid points edge for Spinks (50-46 on the unofficial card) at the midway point. However, Maxim holds a slight edge in punches landed and a huge edge in stamina as the bout heads into the later rounds. Then, near the end of the seventh round, Spinks drops Maxim with a wild overhand right; Maxim is saved by the bell. Spinks is unable to follow up, but in round nine, more trouble for Maxim as he suffers a cut on his forehead. Then, in a sudden and dramatic turnaround, a Maxim uppercut causes a deep gash over Spinks’s left eye, which spurts blood uncontrollably. An immediate stoppage is order, and Maxim is awarded the TKO win on the cuts stoppage. A peek at the judges’ cards showed Spinks ahead (77-75) on all three.

Jack Delaney UD 10 John Henry Lewis (10)

Jack “Bright Eyes” Delaney gets off to a strong start, posing problems for the highly regarded Lewis. Delaney works inside, while Lewis stays mainly on the outside. The bout remains close, with the unofficial scorer having Delaney with a narrow edge (48-47) after the first five rounds. Lewis comes alive with a good round six, despite suffering a split lip; Delaney shows signs of wear and tear in the form of a rapidly swelling left eye. The bout remains extremely close headed into the later rounds; the stamina edge favors Delaney, who manages to reopen the cut around Lewis’ mouth in round eight. The bout goes the distance, and the judges favor Delaney (by scores of 96-94, 97-93, 96-94).

Tiger Jack Fox (15) D 10 Harold Johnson

Fox takes charge with a strong round in round three, but Johnson aggressively fights back to keep the bout close (it’s 48-47, with Fox ahead on the unofficial card at the halfway point). Into the later rounds, it’s even on stamina, the punches landed favor Johnson but Tiger Jack appears to be the harder hitter. The bout goes to decision, and a strong finish enables Fox to secure a draw (95-95, 96-94 Fox, 95-95) and a rematch.

Archie Moore (2) TKO 5 Victor Galindez

Moore starts well, pummeling Galindez in a strong opening round. In round two, Galindez shows the effects with a cut over his right eye as well as a rapidly swelling left eye. Galindez bounces back with a big round three, and Moore’s left eye shows signs of puffiness. Moore is back in charge in round five, reopening the cut and generally punishing Galindez until the ref calls a halt, two seconds before the end of the round. Solid outing for the #2 seed.

More upsets, and two drawn bouts will mean two replays.

Second Round Replays, Third Round Pairings

SECOND ROUND REPLAYS

Antonio Tarver UD 10 Billy Conn (6)

Rematch of an earlier drawn bout between the “Pittsburgh Kid” and the “Magic Man.” Both men elect to set up shop on the outside, and Conn does better in terms of controlling the early action. However, surprise – the unofficial scorer has Tarver ahead (by a count of 49-47) at the midway point, although the punches landed stats tell a different story. As the bout heads into the later rounds, Conn solidifies his standing with a big round seven, and he gradually wears down Tarver, who is experiencing some puffiness around his left eye. Nonetheless, the issue remains in doubt until the final round, with Conn sporting a swollen right eye at the end. In the end, a unanimous points win – for Tarver! (by scores of 97-93, 97-93, 96-94). To the surprise of many observers, the #6 seed is eliminated.

Tiger Jack Fox (15) TKO 4 Harold Johnson

In the rematch, Fox bears down, finally ending matters late in round four, when he corners Johnson and blasts away after using his jab to set up some power punches. With just seconds remaining in the round and Johnson defenseless against the ropes, the ref steps in to call a halt.

The loss of top seeds such as Greb and Conn requires a re-seeding of the entire draw for the upcoming round of 16.

THIRD ROUND PAIRINGS

Ezzard Charles (1) vs Lloyd Marshall
Tommy Yarosz (14) vs Tiger Jack Fox (15)
Tommy Loughran (4) vs Harry Matthews
Maxie Rosenbloom (9) vs Jack Delaney
Tommy Gibbons (12) vs Kid Norfolk
Gene Tunney (3) vs Joey Maxim
Bob Foster (13) vs Joe Knight (16)
Archie Moore (2) vs Antonio Tarver
