    Background: HUNGARIAN BOXER LASZLO PAPP, THREE TIMES OLYMPIC CHAMPION, TOOK JUST 11 MINUTES 31 SECONDS TO BEAT PETER MULLER OF GERMANY IN THE MIDDLE-WEIGHT CONTEST THAT ATTRACTED 13,000 FIGHT FANS TO THE TOWN HALL, VIENNA, AUSTRIA, ON OCTOBER 13.

    SPECTACULAR HIGHLIGHT OF THE FIGHT, WHICH ENDED IN THE FOURTH ROUND, WAS IN ROUND TWO, WHEN AFTER TAKING A COUNT OF SIX FOLLOWING A SHARP HOOK FROM PAPP, MULLER AGAIN FELL VICTIM TO A PAPP HOOK AND WAS KNOCKED THROUGH THE ROPES, BUT THE END-OF-ROUND GONG SAVED HIM.

    WHEN THE TWO BOXERS MET IN SEPTEMBER IN COLOGNE, MULLER WAS FORCED TO RETIRE WITH A CUT EYE IN THE EIGHTH ROUND. PAPP, NOW 35 YEARS OLD, IS HOPING FOR A CRACK AT THE EUROPEAN MIDDLEWEIGHT TITLE.
