Post AD WOLGAST Vs BATTLING NELSON :- Part 2

ROUND ELEVEN :- Wolgast outboxed the champion but could not make him break ground/ Nelson mercilessly waded in, unmindful of the constant tatoo that Wolgast beat against his face and jaw with short arm hooks and jolts. Wolgast swung right and left to the jaw. The bell ended the round with Ad hammering away at Nelson's jaw and face, landing almost at will. Nelson's face was a mask of blood as he took his seat with the round honours going to Wolgast. ----------------------------------------------- ROUND TWELVE :- Wolgast was cautioned to let go by the referee. Nelson forced the pace as usual, Wolgast meeting him with several hard left swings to the jaw. Nelson was apparently trying to wear the Milwaukian out, but meanwhile he received fearful punishment. wolgast flaying with right and left with almost pendulum precision. Wolgast seemed to gain confidence as the men roughed it head to head against the ropes. Wolgast never let up and again started the blood going with right and lefts... Wolgast has big round. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ROUND THIRTEEN :- As the men towed the mark, Nelsons lips were puffed and his mouth and eyes swollen, they mixed liked tigers, Wolgast landing repeatedly on the body and jaw, with Nelson fighting wildly and spitting blood. Wolgast literally cut Nelsons face to ribbons, but still the Dane came on for more. Nelson wrestled his man to the ropes, Wolgast covering up. There was a temporary lull in the battle, after which Wolgast swung left and right to the body. The worst beating has ever recieved said the old-time ring followers, as Nelsons seconds worked on his damaged face in the minute available between the rounds.... Wolgasts round. ---------------------------------------------------------------- ROUND FOURTEEN :- Wolgast looked much the fresher as the fighters came out. He flung his right hard at the face and followed up with his left and right to the body. Nelsons face was badly swollen, and Wolgast fighting fiercely taking the fight right to the Battler. Nelson almost forced Wolgast through the ropes and then assisted him to the centre of the ring. Wolgast smiled and shook the champions hand warmly. Wolgast then hooked his left in quick succession to the jaw and followed it by a straight left to the face, and the bell ended a rather stale round. ------------------------------------------------------- ROUND FIFTEEN :- Betting now at even money, they whaled away ineffectively at one another, both showing more caution than displayed in any previous round. Nelson then wrestled his man about the ring only to be rewarded by a left uppercut to his sore mouth. Nelson, outpointed badly, continued to force the pace, all the while the target for Wolgast's well timed swings. Nelson missed a terrific swing that was labelled knockout, and this taught Wolgast that he should be careful. It was another tame round. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ROUND SIXTEEN :- Wolgast swung several times over the kidneys and they roughed it, Nelson recieving the lions share of the punishment. Wolgast kept plugging away with rights and lefts to the jaw. Nelson never wavered but closed in, trading punch for punch, Nelson swung left and right to the body and forced his antagonist against the ropes, landing several times with right and left to the jaw. Nelson went to his seat dancing. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ROUND SEVENTEEN :- Wolgast backed away, Nelson throwing himself on him with great vim. Wolgast met the onslaught with right and left swings to the body. Nelson fought hard and never stopped. Finally, Wolgast swung a terrific right to the jaw and then shot in half a dozen right swings onto Nelsons sore ear. Nelson received a hard uppercut on the jaw, cauding the blood to flow afresh. The men fought hard every inch of the way. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ROUND EIGHTEEN :- "How do you feel", asked Nelson as the men came up.---- "As if I were punching a bag", was the quick rejoinder from Wolgast, with which, he waded in landing right and left on Nelson's sore mouth. Wolgast slipped to his knees in his own corner, but he was up in a jiffy, he covered up, as Nelson battered away at him but failed to land. Wolgast apparently staggered the champion, sending in several rights to the chin. Wolgast deliberately head butted and was quickly rebuked by referee Smith. The crowd hissed and the round ended without damage. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ROUND NINETEEN :- The men came out for the nineteenth round seemingly as fresh as in the first. Wolgast time and again jabbed his left to the face, Nelson fighting back fiercely, but ineffectively. They battled about the ring, Nelson all the time the agressor and never relenting and Wolgast slowly breaking ground and playing for the face and jaw with short arm jolts. Wolgast staggered the champion with a succession of rights to the jaw. There was no giving way with Nelson, and as the round ended hr tripped to his seat. One round was practically a repetition of the last. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ROUND TWENTY :- They slugged and roughed it from one end of the ring to the other-- it was the same old story, Nelson forcing, and Wolgasr retreating and peppering the champions badly swollen face. Wolgast planted his left with much force as the round ended... It was a relatively tame round.--------
Phew !!!,.. and we are only half way folks !!!!

Post AD WOLGAST Vs BATTLING NELSON :- Part 4

ROUND THIRTY-ONE :- Nelsom trotted to the centre of the ring and Wolgast landed several short arm jolts to the stomach. Following that with a right swing to the chin. Nelson fought more carefully, Wolgast swung a hard right to the sore cheek, after which both rested in a clinch. Breaking, Wolgast swung twice with his right on the jaw and danced away as the Dane rushed after him. Wolgast had the advantage of the round. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ROUND THIRTY-TWO :- The round started slowly, and immediately closed in, volleying at each others stomach, with Wolgast landing frequently. Suddenly Wolgast swung with his right, catching Nelson flush on the mouth, and a stream of blood followed. Nelson presented a gory picture as the blood covered him from head to foot. The round ended in Wolgast's favour. He no longer failed to mix it with the champion and appeared to gain in confidence as the fight progressed. --------------------------------------------------------------------- ROUND THIRTY-THREE :- In a clinch, Wolgast drove three rights to the stomach and with his left he peppered away at Nelsons damaged eye. Wolgast then swung two rights to the same place and Nelson was half-blinded, his blows were wild, and he found it difficult to locate the Milwaukee lad. They mixed it and Wolgast landed two hard rights full tilt to the stomach and Nelson clinched. Nelson could see with one eye only, the other being out of commission. It was all Wolgasts round. Nelson's efforts to land were feeble. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ROUND THIRTY-FOUR :- Both came up quickly and had to be pried from a clinch. Bets were offered at even at this stage, with no Nelson money in sight. Wolgast peppered the Battler's sore face, and varied this with right and left short arm rips to the stomach. Nelson seemed to have lost all his vim, and seldom made any determined effort to land. The men closed in and Wolgast and started blood spouting from the champions mouth, with two well directed jolts.... Wolgasts round. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ROUND THIRTY-FIVE :- Nelson was a sight as he came to the centre of the ring. All life seemed to have gone out of him, and although he tried to force matters all his efforts were needed to defend Wolgast's blows. Wolgast started, his arms swinging in a whirlwind fashion, landing without return on the Dane's stomach. Wolgast staggered the champion with a tremendous left swing to the jaw, and Nelson seemed to be going to pieces gradually, Wolgast smashed a right and had the champion groggy from a succession of rights and lefts to the jaw. The bell rang in the nick of time, saving the champion from what looked like, certain defeat. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ROUND THIRTY-SIX :- Nelson came up weak, he waded in but could not see Wolgast, the latter danced around the champion like a jumping-jack, sending in punch after punch. Nelson almost tottered into a clinch but Wolgast fought warily and took no chances of the Battler's stalling. Wolgast played for the head and body alternately, but his blows were not strong enough for a knockout. Nelson almost fell into his chair at the end of the round. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- ROUND THIRTY-SEVEN :- Wolgast took no chances, apparently fearing that the champion was feigning weakness. Wolgast jarred Nelson with three right crosses to the jaw and Nelson could hardly come back. They met in mid-ring with Nelson swinging like a babe and Wolgast landing with good clean punches. Nelsons ability to stem the tide was a wonderful exhibition. Wolgast almost sent Nelson through the ropes with a right smash to the jaw. Nelson tottered about the ring helpless and Wolgast sent in smash after smash as the gong rang, saving Nelson from a knockout. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ROUND THIRTY-EIGHT :- Nelson was a pitiful sight as he staggered to the centre of the ring. Wolgast appeared in no hurry to complete his work. Robinson at this stage tried to throw in the sponge, but the other Nelson seconds grabbed the sponge and threw it back into the bucket. Nelson to all intents and purposes was a beaten man and it required all his senses to stave off or prolong inevitable defeat. Both men were covered from head to foot with the champions blood and the arena soon became a shambles. Wolgast peppered away at the disintegrating champion, the crowd yelling itself hoarse for the Milwaukee Man to end the agony. their cries were mingled with pity for Nelson, betting two to one in favour of Wolgast. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ROUND THIRTY-NINE :- Wolgast seemed loath to put in the finishing touch, he jabbed incessantly at the Battlers anatomy, and again the blood flowed in a stream. Nelson tried to make a last rally, but it was only for a fleeting moment, and he again quickly subsided and scarcely could hold his hands up. Wolgast almost sent Nelson to the floor, landing blow after blow on the defenceless champion's face. Ring followers said that never had they seen such an exhibition of gameness as displayed by Nelson. Referee Smith said he would stop the fight in the next round if Nelsons seconds would not. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ROUND FOURTY :- Wolgast backed away, looking for a final shot, he smashed the beaten champion on the jaw with a right, putting all his final strength into the blow. Nelson tottered on the point of collapse when referee Eddie Smith stopped the fight and awarded the fight and the title to Ad Wolgast. Nelson tried to shake the hand of his conqueror, but was so weak he was nearly dragged to his corner.
AD WOLGAST :- Winner by T.K.O. 40.

HARRY GREB Vs GENE TUNNEY I
A short report from the Providence News, 24th May 1922 :-New York, May 23rd. :- Harry Greb, Pittsburgh Bearcat, and master of landing a dozen blows to his opponents one, defeated Gene Tunney, of Greenwich village, in a furious 15 round encounter in Madison Square Garden last night, and thereby won the American Light-Heavyweight Championship and the right to fight Georges Carpentier for the World Light-Heavyweight Title. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Garden was packed to the rafters and some 13000 wild-eyed fans paid$58,914.12 to see the title change hands. In addition to handing Tunney a far tougher lacing than in his fight with Tommy Gibbons a few weeks ago, greb conceded the champion a weight deficit of 12 pounds, the weights were Tunney 174 and a half and Greb 163 and a quarter. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Greb came out of the unscathed, his hair was barely mussed. Gene Tunney was a weird and gruesome spectacle. Ragged gashes poured a crimson flow from over each eye, his lips were swollen, and his nose was battered. He fought gamely enough, and he had the crowd with him, but he was no more of a match for the revolving tornado of Pittsburgh than was Tommy Gibbons. Greb maintained a terrific pace throughout the 15 rounds and from first to last he smothered all of Tunneys offensive efforts with a deluge of blows. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- It was a hurricane of gloves that met Tunney last night, it was the storm that bewildered him. In two of the rounds, the 7th and the 11th Tunney managed to draw even. He was unable to reach Grebs face with either hand and gradually gave up on that direction and concentrated on the Bearcats body.
HARRY GREB Wins By Unanimous Decision

Cool TONY ZALE Vs ROCKY GRAZIANO I - 1946

OK - No Requests ,... so from :- "The Montreal Gazette", -------------------------- 28 September 1946
ZALE Vs GRAZIANO I
Large Stadium Crowd See's unusual "BLOOD & THUNDER BRAWL" :--- By Sid FEDER : Yankee Stadium, New York, 27 Sept. Tony ZALE, every inch a champion, came back from the verge of a knockout tonight, to flatten the mighty punching Rocky GRAZIANO, in the sixth round of a "Blood and Thunder Brawl", and retain his World Middleweight Championship, Zale weighed 160 and Graziano 154. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Floored once himself, his face bloody as the dynamiter from New York's lower east side turned loose his "Rock-a-Bye" punch, the one time Indiana Steel Mill hand caught up with the challenger in the mid-way of the sixth round to drop him with a lightning left hand and put him away for keeps at 1 minute and 43 seconds in the sixth session of their scheduled 15 rounder. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- It was the second knockdown for Rocky the Rock, in as vicious and bloody a brawl that has been seen in any ring. But this second time, apparently softened up by the body bombs that are Tony's speciality he couldn't make it to his feet again. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- He sat on the ring canvas, holding on to the ropes, as referee Ruby Goldstein, himself a classy Welterweight of a bygone era, counted the full ten, to leave the 160 pound crown on Tony's head in his first defence as champion. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ The crowd of 39,827, one of the greatest crowds ever to see two battlers other than Heavyweights fight it out. were on hand for the proceedings and contributed to a gross gate of $342,497. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The finish was as startling as it was definite and final and one of the greatest crowds to see two little men in action roared for 10 minutes in shock surprise at the suddeness of the end. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- WILL HE COME OUT !!! ... Up until that point, through three of the last four completed rounds. Graziano had given Tony so fierce a going over with his right hand. That when the fifth round ended, some ringsiders were even wondering whether the champion could even come out for the sixth, but out he came, bleeding from his mouth, his face a smear, and Rocky came back in again, then suddenly, Tony caught Rocky against the ropes with two of those "Tummy Torpedoe", specials of his. The Rock covered up, came half way across the ring. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Zale was after him now, he lashed out with a straight left, that straightened up the young knocker-outer who had been installed as a 11 to 5 favourite in the ringside betting. A right hand put Rocky back on his heels. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Then came the crusher, a hard, crunching left hook shot out, and there was Rocky on the deck. Through "Seven" and "Eight" it appeared as though he could pull himself up to his feet. But he couldn't, two seconds after the "Ten" though, he got up and apparently not realising that his shot at the title was over, Rocky came charging and flailing across the ring until the referee grabbed him. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- It was an astonishing pay-off to a fight that was one series of hair-raisers from beginning to end. Graziano was on the deck in the first heat, Zale was down in the second and was still there when the bell had sounded to end the second.
I Wish I was there for that one. WHAT A FIGHT !!!!!!
