Joey Archer vs Don Fullmer
"Joey Archer of New York scored his 30th straight pro victory last night with solid left jabs and left hooks and sharp rights to the body for an upset majority 10 round decision over middleweight contender Don Fullmer at MSG. Fullmer won the opening round by a wide margin with his wild hooking attack and had an advantage in the 2nd. But then Archer's boxing skill and straighter punching began to pay off. He bloodied Fullmer's nose in that 3rd session and smashed him with four hard rights to the head. He also scored with the left jab and combinations to the head. There were no knockdowns." -United Press International
Despite New York beseiged by a 24 hour blizzard, which immobilized traffic, 1,300 still attended the fight.
