More:



One of the most controversial fights in boxing history. The first heavyweight world championship fight to go to a 15-round decision. Schmeling's manager grabbed the mic after the decision and famously shouted into it: "We was robbed!" Scores have been converted from a round-scoring system to the modern ten-point must system.

Time to start from the beginning again!

Schmeling overpowered Sharkey with punching power.

Max Schmeling took all the rounds with smarter Boxing with better tactics Schmeling was smart he out boxed Sharkey all night.

Boxing Purist's picture

Well Schmeling certainly won, but it was far from a shutout to my eye. The gentlemen calling the fight couldn't have been more onesided, even in rounds where Sharkey's jab won the day. A clear victory for Schmeling, at the end of the day and though Sharkey won several rounds the 13th being his lone clear session, he ceratinly should not have won this fight.

The gentlemen calling the fight or me never give sympathy rounds that's Boxing 101 just cause you did a little better in certain rounds but was still out worked don't give a man a round. Schmeling controlled the action and picked his spots to be more active and more violent but he controlled the entire match with ring generalship using his size advantage as a asset the whole bout.

Boxing Purist's picture

I agree that Schmeling controlled the action which is how I have him winning the fight, but scoring is subjective. To my eye Sharkey's jab and activity kept him in the fight in a manner of speaking, he still lost two thirds of the rounds and took a severe trashing from Schmeling's right hand. In no way could a impartial observer whole actually watched the fight and really paid attention see this battle in favor of Sharkey. But he did win rounds to my eye. Hey while I have you here, could you tell where you found those early Jack Johnson fights to score? I don't want to leave them blank, but I don't want to copy other peoples scores either.

Sharkey round by round felt so much more Pain can you see his distress even in better moments.

You a regular Eagle EYE I Agree and We Agree Schmeling Won.

Matchroom's picture

That might have been a do over after the bit of theater from the first clash.

Both had enough heart to fight in a neutral venue Max Schmeling was from Germany had enough mental toughness to come to America and fight Jack Sharkey a man from Boston in near by New York a neutral venue for both men.

The first fight was Yankee Stadium Bronx New York and the rematch was at the Madison Square Garden Bowl Long Island City Queens New York. Fair Territory.
