Howard Cosell Final Boxing Broadcast Here are the final two rounds of Larry Holmes' one-sided heavyweight title defense against Randall (Tex) Cobb in Houston in 1982. The fight was notorious for Howard Cosell's negative, anti-boxing commentary. Cosell never worked another bout.

Willard-Johnson Fight 1915 This is must-see footage for boxing fans: Jess Willard's heavyweight title victory over reigning champion Jack Johnson on April 5, 1915 in Havana, Cuba. For years Johnson claimed he had thrown the fight for a $50,000 payoff. However, I believe the film shows 'White Hope' Willard's knockout victory to be totally legitimate.

Lopez Vs  Malvarez 1978 Some months ago I posted a 1979 Sports Illustrated cover featuring exciting world featherweight champion Danny 'Little Red' Lopez. Here he is defending his title against Argentina's Juan Malvarez on September 15, 1978 in a short but dramatic contest. Lopez was a notoriously slow starter who often got decked early by his opponent. Lopez would invariably roar back and score a knockout...like he did here.

Mike Tyson SI Cover There was once a time when Mike Tyson was a positive force for boxing. He was six months shy of his 20th birthday when he first appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated in 1986 billed as 'Kid Dynamite.' Tyson's story made good copy: He was a tough kid from the projects who was more or less adopted by boxing guru Cus D'Amato and turned into a champion with frightening power. D'Amato also instilled in Tyson a love of boxing history--a rare commodity among modern pugilists. D'Amato died not long afterwards. So did another one of Tyson's handlers, Jim Jacobs. Tyson wed actress Robin Givens, but the marriage was a disaster. Things spiralled downward from that point...

Louis-Roper Fight  - 1939 During Joe Louis' long reign as world heavyweight champion, there weren't many quality contenders who could give him a good tussle. Case in point: On April 17, 1939, Louis defended his crown against Jack Roper in the challenger's hometown of Los Angeles. Here is the complete fight in which Roper was separated from his senses inside of one round. Roper's career record was a mediocre 63-43-10. No wonder the press began derisively referring to Louis' opponents as the Bum of the Month Club.

Howard Cosell SI Cover Renowned broadcaster Howard Cosell graced the cover of this August 8, 1983 issue of Sports Illustrated. Cosell was already a bit of a has-been by then. Cosell had sworn off pro boxing in 1982. By the end of 1983 he would leave ABC's Monday Night Football broadcasting team too. The 1984 Summer Olympics would be Cosell's broadcasting swansong. He left a legacy of excellence and honesty. You either loved Cosell or hated him. He was regularly voted the most popular sports broadcaster in America--and he was regularly voted the most hated sports broadcaster in America.

Roy Jones Olympic Boxing Robbery 1988 The 1988 Olympic boxing tournament in Seoul, South Korea was replete with controversies. The absolute worst was the appalling decision that denied American Roy Jones an Olympic gold medal. The stench from this horrendous decision caused the entire amateur boxing scoring system to be revamped.
