Jeff Chandler vs Oscar Muniz 2


"Jeff Chandler 117 lbs beat Oscar Muniz 117 lbs by TKO at 0:23 in round 7 of 15
"Jeff Chandler successfully defended his WBA bantamweight title for the 9th time when he stopped Oscar Muniz in the 7th round Saturday at the Sands Hotel and Casino. Chandler opened a cut above the challenger's left eye in the 2nd round and used his 4 1/2 inch reach advantage to work on the cut until referee Vincent Rainone put an end to the bout after examining the gash. Chandler went to work on Muniz's head in the 2nd round and opened the cut above the Californian's left eye. But Muniz retaliated with a flurry of punches late in the round and backed up the champ. In the 4th round, blood covered the left side of Muniz's face and Chandler opened a cut on the challenger's right cheek with solid left hands. Muniz fought gamely to the end." -Associated Press

  • "I was motivated because he had beaten me. I straightened him up with the left hook and then bang, he was in front of the right hand." -Jeff Chandler
  • "When he came back to the corner (after the 1st round) Muniz said he was having trouble closing his mouth after taking a lot of right hands." -Ed Sobel, Muniz's trainer, who feared Muniz's jaw was broken."

Jeff Chandler vs Johnny Carter


1. 9-10 Carter. Very enthusiastic start, lots of movement, lots of punches, looks a bit nervous but Chandler letting him take the first

2. 9-10 Carter, similar to the first but Jeff starting to establish his jab, looking calm and composed in there and looks the stronger of the two

3. 10-9 Chandler. Carters corner asking him to slow down, no wonder, fighting nervously and with a lot of energy. Carter works his way into this round, by the end, standing toe to toe and landing cleanly with conbinations.

4. 10-9 Chandler. Big round. Carter has zero movement, zero defence and zero thought going into his work. Just standing swinging, hitting gloves and missing against the far more defensively astute Chandler. Chandler also scoring for fun and showboating

5. 10-9 Chandler, really doing as he pleases, he intentionally switches from boxing at range, to pressing and fighting toe to toe, to laying on the ropes, to standing waiting for big counters, to show he has Carter beat any way he likes. Carter still going for it but he's badly out classed here

6. TKO Jeff Chandler. Carters corner send him out to box and move, the "dancing machine" does that and Jeff starts to showboat and take the piss. Soon as they engage Chandler scores the uppercut and two left hooks that catch Johnny swinging. He looks as good as out and the ref let's him fight on another 30 seconds of beatdown, arguably a little longer than he should have.

@charltonlad have you see this KO Becky O'Neil. Jeff Chandlers manager, I bet she's just your type

This is her standing next to a bantamweight

Lupe Pintor vs Seung Hoon Lee


Pintor struggling making weight. Lee is 5'9"

1. 10-9 Pintor, this is the new Lupe again, more mobile and busier right from the off. Good round and Lee boxed well behind a very long jab and scored a couple good shots late in the round himself

2. 9-10 Lee. He looks a very well schooled boxer for a Taekwando black belt recently converted. He also looks a very solidly put together fighter for a 5'9" bantamweight

3. 10-9 Pintor. Fairly dominant round, a lot of it single shots but has a huge amount of success particularly with the left hook. Heavy handed as ever.

4. 10-9 Pintor. Very close round with a good amount of action, just gave Pintor the nod as the quality and weight of punch looks slightly better

5. 8-10 Lee. He scored a good right early then really let his hands go. Took his time for a bit then had a similar spell of success. Things had calmed down a little toward the end when Pintor seemed to indicate a head clash, at which point Lee smashes a right hand that drops him. Didn't see that coming

6. 10-9 Pintor. Really good comeback round, moving in and out, scoring well with two shot attacks and looks to have hurt Lee with a few of them

7. 10-9 Pintor, good round for Lupe, landing hard shots and walking his man down. Lee has success when he rams home the jab and backs Lupe up but can't keep it up. Great last 30 seconds as Lupe has him hurt a couple times and Lee fight back bravely

8. 10-9 Pintor. Starts quite even, Pintor starts to come on strong but Lee digs deep and finds a couple flurries of his own. Pintor though goes through the gears to finish really strong and hurts Lee again

9. 10-9 Pintor. That was a beat down. But for two short pockets of resistance from Lee in the first half, that could have been a 10-8 round. At one point Pintor must throw about 20 unanswered punches. It's nearing the end.

10. 10-9 Pintor. He is some machine, he has put a lot into this fight and in round 10 he fires hard shots for the whole 3 minutes. Lee keeps on surprising, looks spent then has a minute of really good activity but can't sustain it, just highlights the extraordinary effort of Lupe

11. TKO Pintor. No knock down but Pintor basically beats him unanswered for a good minute and a half until the ref responds to the calls from the crowd to get him out of there.

97-92 after 10 and a lot to like about Seung Hoon Lee but Pintor is a different animal. Physically he has always looked impressive, his offensive skill never in doubt but he has added more to his game and has become a very good world champion.

This would be his last at 118lbs as he struggled to make the weight but it never told in his stamina as there are few that can come on strong like this late in a fight.

8 defences make him one of the greats of the bantamweight division

Agustin Senin


In 1971, Agustin Senin, the reigning Spanish champion would defeat Alan Rudkin over 15 rounds by quite a wide unanimous decision to secure the EBU bantamweight championship. He would go on to defend this title against Frenchman Guy Caudron and Italian Antonio Sassarini before retiring at 26 with an unbeaten 42-0-1 record.

@okrick what do you know about this lad?
It's strange that you see a few European fighters with very good records in these days, that never challenge for a world title.
I have more information about Senin that I think you'll like It.

As I said to you, Senin was a peculiar man. When he makes the defense in Italy, he breaks with his manager (Alfonso Goya) and names himself as manager, waiting for a world title fight.

Olivares had Lost against Rafael Herrera and this one against Pinder. WBC forced Pinder to fight against Rodolfo Martínez but Pinder signed a contract for a bout against Anaya, so that WBC title was vacant.

Then WBC orders Rodolfo Martínez vs Senín (I explained It in other post). In that time, the purse bids didn't exist, the first one in WBC is made when Sulaimán is named president, one couple of years later.

So that WBC orders the fight and gives It to a Mexican promoter (Cesena). Cesena offers an amount of money to Senín (I've read several amounts) and Spanish boxer says that he doesn't fight. A Spanish promoter makes an offer to fight in Spain but Mexican team and WBC (Velázquez was president) wants that fight in México.

WBC presses, talking about Rodolfo Martínez vs Rafael Herrera, and Senín answers He is tired of dirty side Boxing. And he announced his retired.

Spanish Federation president, Sulaimán and several managers and promoters called him but he said "I'm retired".

Sulaimán was affected by this and one of the first things that he makes as president is to establish the purse bids.

So it sounds like Senin had a considerable contribution to the sport outside the ring.

Apparently more of an impact outside it than in it. Which is a shame given he has an unbeaten 43 fight record and a run at European level that would indicate he was ready for the world stage

Yes, he had made a good fight. In Spain he could have won, and maybe in a neutral country

Jeff Chandler vs Miguel Iriarte


"Jeff Chandler 118 lbs beat Miguel Iriarte 118 lbs by TKO at 2:20 in round 9 of 15

Jeff Chandler won two fights in the same day - and the second victory was the more enjoyable for the WBA bantamweight champion.

Chandler's first battle on Wednesday was with the scales. He weighed in at 119 1/4 pounds that morning for his fight with Miguel Irarte of Panama and had two hours to get down to the class limit of 118. A half-hour before the deadline, he weighed in at 117 3/4 to Iriarte's 117 1/2.

The second fight lasted less than 27 minutes.

Chandler seemed dubious of Iriarte's high ranking and wasn't pleased about the WBA threats to strip him of the title if he didn't fight the Panamanian.

Chandler made Iriarte pay, peppering him with head shots and taunts and playing to the crowd before stopping the challenger at 2:20 of the ninth round of the scheduled 15-rounder at Resorts International.

"They had a clown in the ring with me, and so I clowned," said the unbeaten Chandler, who made his sixth title defense. "They put a novice in the ring with a world champion. That's not right."

"When I found out he couldn't fight... wow," said Chandler.

The 26-year-old champion took control of the fight in the third round spearing the 27-year-old challenger with with several sharp left jabs and hooks.

In the sixth, Chandler ripped a cut on the bridge of Iriarte's nose and landed seven or eight crisp head shots with either hand.

Iriarte got a respite for a little more than two minutes late in the seventh when Chandler's right glove split and had to be changed.

In the ninth, Chandler wobbled Iriarte with a right to the head and backed him up with a left hook. The champion pounded home a 10-punch barrage to the head, then after being bulled across the ring by the desperate Iriarte, landed eight more blows, climaxed by a right to the jaw.

Iriarte began to fall, but kept himself up by grabbing a strand of the ropes. However, referee Joe Cortez stopped the fight.

"I respect the judgment of the referee," said Iriarte, who also complained that Cortez let Chandler get away with butting and thumbing. Chandler felt that Cortez let Iriarte get away with butting and said it was a butt that opened a nick over his left eye.

  • Source: Schuyler Jr. Ed. Chandler Handles Scales and Iriarte. The New London Day (1982, Oct. 28) p.33. Article"

1. 10-9 Chandler, he's come out moving and dancing. Iriarte forcing the issue here and gets off some good shots to the body but Chandler should be levels above here

2. 9-10 Iriarte. He's crude but he's swinging away, wailing to the body and offloads when Jeffs back is to the rope. Jeff taking his time letting him burn off some energy and throwing little other than the jab

3. 10-9 Chandler. Lots of punches flowing from Iriarte but not a lot of quality. Not a lot coming from Chandler but what he does throw lands clean and snaps Iriarte's head back noticeably

4. 10-9 Chandler. Similar to round 3. The commentary have been giving these to Iriarte and I can see how they would like the volume and aggression but it's still a gulf in class for me.

5. 10-9 Chandler. Well he's certainly going to end up with some sore ribs in the morning but he's still doing enough to be winning these rounds

6. 10-9 Chandler. Superior timing, reflexes and accuracy mean is landing so many more head shots. Not sure Iriarte lands anything other than body shots and even then he catches more than his fair share of elbows.

7. 10-9 Chandler doing as he pleases here, landing at will, which is why the commentary are becoming increasingly impatient at Chandler constant showboating. Fight gets stopped with 30 seconds to go after Chandlers right glove split.

8. 10-9 Chandler with more of the same, although I suspect him trying to display his full offensive repertoire is leading to some odd shot selection, he gets caught with a long right hand as he's backing up trying to catch Iriarte with a short right uppercut that he was never in range for.

9. TKO. Chandler. Lands a cracking right hand that really staggers Iriarte. Jeff really takes his time seeing that Iriarte is on very unsteady foundations. He lands a few combinations and lands every shot and Iriarte is all over the place, doing well to stay upright, Joe Cortez puts a stop to it.

79-73 Chandler. The commentary gave him a couple more early on, not that it mattered greatly, Chandler was levels above this guy and it was just a matter of him letting Iriarte burn through some energy and Jeff taking his time to really get started. Once he did he was schooling him effortlessly and always looked like stopping him at some point.

The commentary highly critical of the WBA match making and a Panamanian suddenly arriving at no1 in the rankings. While the WBA headquarters are in Panama

Iriarte was out of his depth and nowhere near world level.
It's hard to judge Chandler on the last two opponents but he does look improved, his punching is a lot more spiteful and powerful than the first couple times I watched him and his confidence seems sky high in the ring. He shows fight after fight that he can beat a man comfortably going forward or back, fighting aggressive or defensive and has every punch in the book. He seems a pretty complete fighter and it's been interesting watching this guy and Pintor both developing at a similar pace.
It's a real shame they never met

Lupe Pintor vs Jorge Lujan - superbantam weight non title fight . 23.09.1982


Lupe Pintor 123 lbs beat Jorge Lujan 124 lbs by UD in round 10 of 10
Pintor knocked down Lujan in the 6th round.

Source: Los Angeles Times

1. 10-9 Pintor. Started at a decent pace, scored some solid shots on the front foot, landing some heavy left hands. Lujan retreating but scored a couple decent shots himself with decent handspeed

2. 10-9 Pintor. Good close round, Pintor scoring more solid looking shots. He does fall in love with that left hand a lot, throwing combinations of hooks and uppercuts with the same glove when you have to think it would be quicker to mix a right hand in there.

3. 9-10 Lujan. Such a hard round to score, Lujan scored with several combinations and got the better accuracy in exchanges. But Pintor landed probably the two beat single overhands rights of the fight. Commentary reckoned it was Pintors best round of the fight ironically, so I've maybe scored the first 3 wrong.

4. 10-9 Pintor. Good round management, boxes his way into the first minute then the next two he gradually presses his man more, scoring more and landing heavier.

5. 10-9 Pintor. Constant pressure, Lujan trying to circle but Pintor cutting the ring off well. Lujan scores a couple fast combinations but the heavy blows particularly some of the body shots late in the round give it to Lupe

6. 10-8 Pintor. That left hook is wicked. At one point Lujan scored a straight right and Lupe counters with a short left hook and the quick counter left land is harder than Lujans loaded up right. The commentary note that Lujan is circling away from that left hook, seconds before Pintor dumps him on his ass with one

7. 10-9 Pintor, attacks Lujan from early on then just slows to a steady pace and lets Lujan back into the round a little. Lujan recovered well.

8. 10-9 Pintor. A closer round there, again possibly coming down to effective aggression and power from Pintor. He generates great torque in his shots, turns right into them. A left hook to the body completely turns Lujan at one point.

9. 10-9 Pintor. Lujan just trying to stay out of range and his shots lacking conviction. He does throw a few but his accuracy is off now. Pitor not having his best round but still backing his man off and landing a few solid shots.

10. 10-9 Pintor. Tried to hurt him throughout looking for the stoppage. Scored some good body shots, which may have hurt but never really looked like putting Lujan down. Lujan made a few efforts, so there was never a round right until the end that Lujan was out of the fight but for me largely outgunned

99-90 Pintor.
One of the refs only gave Lujan one round, two of them agreed with commentary that he took 3 and I could see that if you scored early rounds for quantity over quality.

He hurt Lujan a couple times but Lujan still looked comfortable enough after 10. Would liked to have seen if Pintor cluld have got the job done over 15 but I wouldn't be surprised either way as Lujan seemed a hard chap.

Decent fight to set up Pintor against the very impressive Wilfredo Gomez

Wilfredo Gomez vs Lupe Pintor WBC super bantamweight title 03.12.1982


Lupe Pintor 121 lbs lost to Wilfredo Gomez 121 lbs by TKO at 2:44 in round 14 of 15


Notes
  • The third round was named 1982 Round of the Year by The Ring.
  • About a week before the fight, promoter Don King convinced the boxers to accept purse reductions due to lagging ticket sales. Gomez and Pintor, who had signed to fight for $750,000 each, took a pay cut of $125,000. The main event fighters, Thomas Hearns and Wilfred Benitez, who had been guaranteed $1.5 million a piece, received $250,000 less. [2]
  • Initially, promoters hoped to attract a crowd of 40,000 to the Superdome in New Orleans. However, estimated attendance was just 12,000.
  • The fight was shown on HBO, pay-per-view and at 150 closed circuit locations. [3]
  • In a 2010 article for ESPN.com titled "A look at the Mexico-Puerto Rico rivalry," writer Graham Houston selected Gomez-Pintor as the most memorable Mexico-Puerto Rico showdown ever. [4]

Dec. 3, 1982: Gomez vs Pintor
By Robert Portis | The Fight City | August 25, 2015

On this date back in 1982, Wilfredo Gomez and Lupe Pintor helped write another thrilling chapter in the long saga of glorious violence that is the boxing rivalry between Puerto Rico and Mexico. No list of the best fights between those two great pugilistic nations, nor of the most exciting clashes of the 1980s, is complete without this classic: Gomez vs Pintor, a barn-burner from the opening bell, testing both warriors to the utmost and leaving fight fans limp after almost 14 rounds of back-and-forth barbarism.

Gomez of Puerto Rico, one of the greatest super-bantamweights of all-time, was rebounding from a crushing upset loss the year before to Hall of Fame Mexican featherweight champ Salvador Sanchez. He had already recorded a busy 1982, scoring five wins including three successful defenses of his world title. He knew capping the year with a win over Mexican bantamweight champ Pintor would go a long way to restoring his fearsome reputation after his thrashing at the hands of Sanchez.

Mexico’s Pintor, having enjoyed a series of title wins since his controversial victory over champion Carlos Zarate in 1979, was in search of bigger game. A victory over Gomez meant a huge step up in terms of reputation and earning power and Pintor was determined to win his second divisional title. A showdown between dominant champions, astonishingly this guaranteed thriller was not the main event on Don King’s “Carnival of Champions” card at the Louisiana Superdome; instead Thomas Hearns vs Wilfred Benitez would serve as the anti-climax after Gomez and Pintor had waged their unforgettable war. In retrospect how could anyone have expected Hearns vs Benitez to not be upstaged by some Latin “macho” fisticuffs, Mexico vs Puerto Rico style?

Gomez got off to a fast start, jolting Pintor with an uppercut in the opening round and dominating the second. It appeared Gomez had seized the initiative and his higher punch output along with his advantages in size and power would carry the day. But the third round, one of the great action rounds of the year, saw Pintor reverse the momentum. After absorbing a shellacking on the ropes for a full minute, the challenger abruptly took the play from Gomez, landing with both hands. The two traded toe-to-toe for the rest of the round, Pintor getting the better of it.

And once Pintor began connecting, the flesh around Gomez’s eyes immediately began to swell, reminiscent of “Bazooka’s” battle with Sanchez. Still, Gomez never stopped attacking, taking the fourth round on pure aggression, before dropping the fifth to Pintor who stayed off the ropes in that round and used his left hand effectively. The next three rounds belonged to Gomez who continued to attack, expending more energy than the challenger as he sought to overwhelm the smaller man. By contrast, Pintor fought patiently, waiting for opportunities to come. And come they did.

The match was already a fast-paced, all-action war, but the real drama began in the later rounds. The ninth and tenth belonged to Pintor, who appeared to have more zip both in his legs and his punches than the tiring champion. It was now clear that the longer the contest went, the worse it would be for Gomez as his face continued to puff up, his corner frantically applying ice between rounds. But time appeared to be in Pintor’s corner as the back-and-forth action only intensified.

Round eleven was another slugfest, both men having their moments but Gomez’s edge in power taking it. Pintor’s resilience was now emerging as the story of the fight as, astonishingly, he appeared unmarked and amazingly fresh after eleven rounds of a brutal battle. He needed all of his toughness to survive the next round as a desperate Gomez unloaded everything he had in a bid to finish the fight, but at the end of the round Pintor was still there, firing back, stunning Gomez with a left hook at the bell and “Bazooka” had to be helped back to his corner.

Had it been scheduled for 12 rounds, the champion surely would have taken a decision, but there were three to go and Gomez looked to have nothing left. Round thirteen was the slowest of the match and with the Puerto Rican’s eyes now almost completely closed, Pintor appeared to have the momentum. Which made the finish all the more surprising.

In round 14, a frantic Gomez once again attacked with all he had and finally managed to inflict some serious hurt on the tough Mexican. The champion, who could barely see and later confessed to be fighting strictly on instinct, struck home with a vicious left to the body and a right to the head to score the first knockdown of the fight. Amazingly, Pintor rose but he was finished. That left to the body had decided the contest. Gomez chased a hurt Pintor to the ropes where the Mexican went down again after taking a hard left to the jaw and the referee immediately halted what still stands as one of the greatest of all the great Mexico vs Puerto Rico battles. [5]

I had it wider to Gomez than the judges did last time I scored it.



1. 10-9 Gomez. Great light footwork, terrific hand speed, nice jab and feints that keep Pintor in his shell and helps to set up a sharp right hand.

2 10-9 Gomez. Scoring that fast one two again, the overhand right seldom misses. Pintor having more success, mainly thudding body shots.

3. 9-10 Pintor. Exceedingly good round. Gomez peppers him with fast shots against the ropes, they go unanswered but a lot hitting gloves. Second half Pintor goes to work and lands mire accurately and with more power, however Gomez does return fire and exchange. Lot of variables to consider scoring this one but I'll give it to Lupe on damage done.

4. 9-10 Pintor. A round of jabs. Gomes with more and quicker jabs, Lupe more forceful. But it's a right cross and uppercut mid round that take it for Lupe

5. 9-10 Pintor. Another incredibly tough one to score. Gomez scored some very good right hands but it's just the reaction to Pintor landing his heavy shots that makes me give him the nod. Could easily score this to Wilfredo though, cracking round

6. 8-10 Pintor. He's landing the more effective shots here. Gomez busier but wasting a lot of his punches. Pintor mire accurate and heavy handed. Gomez deducted a point for an elbow

7. 10-9 Gomez. Using his movement better, making Pintor miss with upperbody movement in particular. Scoring well with those fast straight one twos, not a lot of variety but it is scoring.

8. 10-9 Gomez. When he stays at range, he's too quick for Lupe and those straight shots get in clean. Not doing a lot of damage but they score and Pintor throws some looping shorts that only catch gloves

9. 10-8 Gomez. He really let his hands go but surprisingly he did it inside, working with hooks and body shots and uppercuts and abandoning the straight shots from the outside that worked so well earlier and he scores regularly. Pintor deducted a point for a low blow

10. 9-10 Pintor. Another tremendous round of boxing and it's hard to split them again. I was really struggling when the ref stopped it to tape up Gomez glove, so that 20 second burst for Pintor at the end edges this one

11. 10-9 Gomez, lands some brilliant combinations, really pours it on here. Pintor has his success in the roumd but was overwhelmed at times and looked to stagger back from a couple shots

12. 10-9 Gomez. If round 3 was round of the year, then rounds 5, 10 and 12 were runners up. This was great action, Gomez was relentless for long spells hurting Pintor against the ropes with a barrage, in his brief breaks Pintor fired back and Pintor went for it in the last 10 then Gomez cornerman literally picked him up and carried him right across the ring to his corner

13. 9-10 Pintor, presses the action for the most part and lands the better shots but looks relatively pedestrian in comparison to Gomez pouring it on the last two. It's not often Pintor doesn't look the stronger man going into later rounds

14. KO Gomez. Starts well, then catches him with a body shot misses a left hook but scores the right hook over the top to bundle Pintor over. Not sure if he was hurt or just knocked over but you find out soon enough, as the next assault against the ropes sees a couple shots land before a chopping left hook floors Pintor again. He was exhausted and obviously was jurt from the earlier exchange and that left finished it. Ref didn't even look at Pintor, he just followed Gomez waving but it looked a good stoppage, even if Pintor could have beaten the count he looked well done here.

123-122 Gomez going into the 14th.
My previous score wider than all the judges and this one narrower. Not that it matters, the right man was ahead and didn't need the cards, some close rounds but the action in there was special, one of the best fights ever, fantastic action and adding Pintor to Zarate, Gomez really did clear up the bantams as well as being the man at SBW, a tremendous boxer.

Reading back over the previous card I scored on punches landed, which Gomez won clearly and consistently in most rounds. Tonight I accounted for the power and effect of Pintors punches, as evidenced by Gomez face. The correct card probably sits between the two extremes, which is where 2 of the professionals called it. Saying that, 1 ref had it by a point to Pintor.

Get a bit of fill in for Alberto Davila, who we've seen before and is up next. After losing in a WBC challenege top Lupe Pintor, he won 6 and had a NC on the run up to his shot at the vacant title against Bejines.
The stand out win was another man that featured recently, in the battle of the Alberto's (sounds better than Tweetie vs Super-fly) @Super_Fly_Sam

Alberto Davila vs Alberto Sandoval


Alberto Davila 119 lbs beat Alberto Sandoval 120 lbs by PTS in round 10 of 10
  • Date: 1982-11-18
  • Location: Olympic Auditorium, Los Angeles, California, USA
  • "Albert Davila, the WBC's No. 1 contender, erased any doubt about his ranking Thursday night at the Olympic Auditorium when he scored an easy unanimous 10 round decision over a game, but outmatched Alberto Sandoval. Southern California boxing experts and fight fans had been asking for this fight since Davila and Sandoval were working their way through the Pomona amateur ranks. Davila may have put an end to the rivalry with his first good combination in a 1st round that drew blood from the nose of Sandoval. In the 4th round, it was more of the same and toward the end of the round, Davila had Sandoval in trouble. The rest of the fight consisted of Davila finding Sandoval's jaw with his right hand and Sandoval trying to keep Davila away with ineffective jabs." -Santa Ana Orange County Register
    Pre-fight comment
    • "In some ways, this fight is more important than a championship." -Albert Davila, commenting on their long-brewing Pomona, California rivalry

1. 10-9 Davila. Scored more, landed with left jab, left hook and a little shot he throws that's somewhere in between

2. 9-10 Sandoval. Has the reach advantage that helps him score his right cross, probabl gets that home more than he does the jab

3. 9-10 Sandoval similar to the last round and in both Davila did score well in the last minute to give you something to think about

4. 10-9 Davila. Quite close again, both missing a lot of shots in the first half. Davila landing to the body more regularly. Heats up a bit toward the end and Davila possibly just had the egde in that portion too. Ref had to split them when the bell rings.

5. 10-9 Davila. A very close round with a lot to take in. It's fought at a quick pace and hard to tell all what is landing and what isn't. Could have gone either way

6. 10-9 Davila when he gets in close to score those compact hooks to head and body, he's a dangerous looking little fighter and Sandoval couldn't fend him off here. First time it's looked like hurtful shots are really landing

7. 10-9 Davila. Sandoval started well but it has the feeling of one of those fights where even when he is winning the round or part of it, he is gettimg there through maximum effort just to keep the other guy at bay. Davila definitely feels like the guy with the momentum behind him now, finished that strong.

8. 10-9 Davila, steams in with his head low, always letting both hands go. Bit of a force of nature this wee fella, should look more tired than he is. Sandoval looks like he is tiring

9. 9-10 Sandoval. If he is tiring he dug deep here, scored a number of decent right hands. Davila tried to find something extra but he has put a lot into this. He scored a few nice little uppercuts inside though but Sandoval did enough this time.

10. 9-10 Sandoval. Good last round, lot of infighting and probably as well it was not over 12 as they both look knackered. Similar to last round Sandovals right hands trump Davilas nice short shots inside.

96-94 Davila

Jeff Chandler vs Gaby Canizales


Jeff Chandler 118 lbs beat Gaby Canizales 117 lbs by UD in round 15 of 15

1. 10-9 Chandler. Big height and reach difference and Chandler using the long jab very well. Canizales trying to lunge in with big hooks that are largely blocked

2. 9-10 Canizalez. Chandler trying to take the pace out of these early rounds, throwing single shots, mainly the left hand. But Canizales gets him in the corner and shows how he has the high KO percentage, gets a lot of rotation into the hooks to the body inside, really digs them in

3. 10-9 Chandler. Moving more, mixing the left hook in between those jabs keeps Canizales off for long spells but one good flurry against the ropes again highlights why Jeff is fightimg with caution, this little fella looks dangerous and he's lucky the ref (wrongly) breaks it off to warn Gaby of low blows.

4. 10-9 Chandler. His tactics may be negative and his punches thrown sparingly but he is limiting Canizales. Gaby wants to work and goes in hard when he gets the openings but they are few and far between.

5. 9-10 Canizales better round, busier from both. The commentator painting the picture that Canizales is working harder but there are long spells when he can't get into range to fire. When he does he really lets them go and felt he edged this one.

6. 10-9 Chandler just picking him off at range right through this round and Canizales largely standing off and letting him. Gaby needs to get in and get working, not that the commentator has noticed.

7. 10-9 Chandler, Canizales got off tona good start but his success involves such energy output he can't donit for 3 minutes and he spends the second 2 minutes getting his ears boxed off and Chandler maybe got to him a little here.

8. 10-9 Chandler having it more and more his own way and Jeff has grown into an increasingly confident champion with showboating becoming a big part of his fighting style.

9. 10-9 Chandler, he's very comfortable in there and in complete control, he's a very nice boxer to watch when he is in full flow.

10. 10-9 Chandler, his control of distance is key here, Jeff keeps it where he can score perfectly at full reach with accurate straight fast shots. When Canizales tries to hook with those shorter arms, he just steps back meaning Canizales has to lunge and over reach.

11. 10-9 Chandler, actually get the impression Canizales is becoming slightly demoralised. It's a bit disappointing because he does seem like he can take rounds when he does put his shots together. He couldn't sustain it long anough to win the fight but you fancy, if he let 3 or 4 burst go in a round he can win them even if he is only able to do that in a few rounds.

12. 10-9 Chandler. Canizales best round in a while, one big explosive burst in the middle of the round and a couple good body shots late, but Jeff scoring too regularly outwith that, fighting at his own pace and now looks comfortable that he can soak up the work of Canizales

13. 10-9 Chandler. Probably the best round of the fight Chandler planting his feet and punching throw the target, that lets Canizales get close enough to fire back. But Jeff is just more accurate. But both men let the heavy leather fly here

14. 10-9 Chandler, definitely more meat on his shots, looks like he is trying to end it now and Canizeles knows a stoppage is his only shot so he is responding in kind. There are lulls in this round as both put a huge effort into the 13th

15. 10-9 Chandler. Nice composed classy boxing for the most part, Canizales can't work his way in until the last 30 second. Maybe nick it late but I don't think so

148 - 137.

Jeff Chandler vs Hector Cortez - Non title bout over 10 rounds


1. 10-8 Chandler. Cortez the taller and physically bigger man, putting it on Chandler early before Jeff walks him onto a nice right hand and drops him. But Cortez won the rest of the round with nice timed counters. Could easily score this closer, in fact I'm probably scoring it wrong

2. 10-8 Chandler knocks him over with a right again, in a closer round, makes it easier to give by 2. Jeff hurt his right wrist there and made a big deal of it, could be bad.

3. 9-10 Cortez, quiet close round, Cortez missing with all but the jab early on but throwing more than Chandler. Cortez scores a couple decent rights over the Chandler left late to secure it.

4. 9-10 Cortez. Chandler lays on the ropes and takes a bit of working over. Then starts showboating and waving him in. Not the fight for that
"Let me get a couple fights at the weight before we start taking Wilfredo Gomez"
Loses this then drops back down to 118lb, wise man

5. 10-9 Chandler. Busier and boxing better and lands a couple of meaningful rights. It had been looking as though he was missing with it on purpose for a bit there

6. 10-9 Chandler. A flurry early and another late probably just nick a round for Chandler where he was probably slightly out fought at other points in the round.

7. 10-8 Chandler. He was well ahead, boxing well, more accurate, scoring left hooks and the odd straight right, then drops him with another right late in the round. How the fuck does Jeff drop this on the cards?

8. 10-9 Chandler boxing well again but Cortez did lamd 2 or 3 good ones through the round but never really followed up

9. 9-10 Cortez. He moved his head well and scored a number of right hands, not one mentioned by commentary. Chnadler scored two rights, to whooping adulation from the same men

10. 10-9 Chandler. Close round up until Jeff opens up big in the last 30 seconds.

97-90 Chandler
Even if you score the first level and a couple close ones to Cortez I can't give Cortez the win. Just can't do it.

Interesting test for Jeff against a 5'9" fighter that looked like he weighed in for super feather weight.
