More:



Dick Tiger takes on the man whom he won his title from, in a highly anticipated rematch. Tiger is more than challanged by the former world champion, he has to bute down on that gumshield, dig deep, and have the better of the late rounds, not to win the fight, but to fight to a draw, which meant he still defended his title, but some would argue Fullmer partially avenged his defeat, because he wasn't beaten in this fight, and he definitely did well in coming as close as possible to beating the champion, and pushing him to a draw.

Close fight I had Tiger winning though.

Doesn't appear to be any film of their second encounter, at least that I can find.
