Good Tournament! Lots of good match-ups. I know what you mean about Ray Robinson winning the whole thing, but you never know what'll happen when you have to win a lot of consecutive fights to make it to the finals. Things happen to the best of the fighter.

Will Ray get a bye round if he makes it to the 3rd round of the tournament?

See I feel the same about Hatton ... I feel he is wildly overrated based on a win over post post prime Kosta in which he was allowed to cheat the entire night. He should have been KTFO by Juan Lazcano but his uncle the ref stopped the fight for two minutes to tie his show while Hatton was on queer street.

Florentino Fernandez vs Charley Fusari

They rumbled inside for four back and forth rds. The Cuban came out of the first 12 minutes with a badly swollen left eye and a cut over his right eye. this inhibited him the rest of the way and Fusari took over, dropping fernandez for a six count with a combo in round 8 and took the UD...96-93, 98-91 & 98-92


My Grandfather was Charlie Fusari's orginal trainer. My father told me yesterday that he sold his contract for $30 because he didn't want to work with him anymore!

I noticed James Page "The Mighty Quinn" in the tournament.
He just disappeared. He was great to watch in action. A big punch. Susceptible to big punches. He fought Jose Luis Lopez who fought to a draw with Ike Quartey. They say Lopez liked the party life too much. He just dropped off the scene, too. Lopez fought Page in a great action fight. He dropped Lopez twice. Lopez was one of those guys who was really economical with his punches. That's probably because he hated to train. If he punched too much, he be out of gas and get blasted. Good memories!

Marlon Starling vs Ike Quartey

GCx2

Moochie came out fast, digging sharp shots to the body and after slipping a jab he hurt Ike with a wicked overhand right. Starling turned aggressor and opened a can of 3:16 up on Quartey for the remainder of the first. Quartey regained his composure and began to pump his jab, the next three rds were very close, but the native of Ghana appeared to edge them. Starling ripped a double hook to the body and another to the head that sent Ike reeling early in the fifth, from there the magic man precisely fired to the head and body of Ike in a dominant round. Ike fought on even terms in the sixth and at the halfway point Quartey's right eye was drastically swelling.

Ike boxed well in a slow seventh and was continuing in the eighth until Marlon slipped a jab and scored with a flush right hand that sent him sprawling to the deck. Ike was up at five, and the usually lackadaisical Magic man, realizing what was at stake, swarmed him with shot after shot to the head and body. Oddly. from this point on the fight became an increasingly tactical affair with little advantage to be found for either man.


Jim Lebel, Manuel Maritxalar & George Smith all scored it 114-113 for the winner by UD.............
























Ike Quartey

Boooooooooooooo


How do you really feel.
