  • Description

    EDUARD CORLETTI, THE ARGENTINIAN HEAVYWEIGHT BOXER BASED IN MILAN, WHO IS BEING GROOMED AS A WORLD TITLE PROSPECT, OUTPOINTED JAMAICAN JOE BYGRAVES OVER TEN ROUNDS IN LONDON TONIGHT (MONDAY).

    CORLETTI PRODUCED SEVERAL FINE COMBINATION PUNCHES BUT LACKED THE POWER TO CAUSE BYGRAVES; WHO HAD HIS LAST FIGHT 15 MOTHS AGO VERY MUCH TROUBLE.

    FROM THE THIRD ROUND ONWARDS IT WAS CLEAR CORLETTI WAS GOING TO WIN. BUT BYGRAVES, TOUGH AND RUGGED, FREQUENTLY TIED UP CORLETTI, WHO WAS NEVER ABLE TO TAKE FIRM CONTROL.

    CORLETTI'S NEW MANAGER, SAM BURNS, OF LONDON, PLANS TO GUIDE THE 25-YEAR-OLD ARGENTINIAN TO A TITLE FIGHT WITH MOHAMMED ALI (FORMERLY NAMED CASSIUS CLAY) WITHIN A YEAR AND TONIGHT'S FIGHT WAS HIS FIRST CONTEST SINCE HE JOINED FORCES WITH BURNS A MONTH AGO.

    CORLETTI, WHO BROKE HIS JAW WHILE OUTPOINTING CANADIAN WORLD TITLE CONTENDER, GEORGE CHUVALO, IN LONDON 14 MONTHS AGO, HAS HAD FIVE SUCCESSIVE WINS SINCE ENTERING THE WORLD TOP BRACKET.

    BUT BYGRAVES, WHO ONCE SPARRED IN LONDON WITH CORLETTI, HAS NOT FOUGHT FOR 15 MONTHS SINCE HE LOST TO CHUVALO.
