  • Description

    Middleweight champion Dick Tiger of Nigeria defends his title against Gene Fullmer Saturday nite 23 Feb 63 in Las Vegas.Tiger, who won the crown from Fullmer in San Francisco last October has been going through rugged preparations for an expected hard fight.He now has boxed at least 89 rounds with sparring partners....The film shows Tiger working out on the big bag (silent) and then shows him sparring against partners with natural sound, comments coming from ringside from his handler Jersey Jones.Although their last fight went fifteen rounds, both men are fully capable of ending the bout short of the 35 round distance.Both men use a rugged, brawling style that adds up an exciting fight.Neither is considered a "fancy dan".At this time, because of youth and his appearance the last time out, Tiger is favoured to repeat his victory.
