1950 Fight of the Year - Ring Magazine "All Dauthuille required when he bell sounded for the final round was to play safe, and had he boxed he would have come through triumphantly." It was a good fight for the first eleven rounds, but full of drama and excitement in the last four. The full account of the fight is in The Ring, November 1950, page 8-9, 50.

referee: Sam Hennessey   judges: Joe LenahanFrank Fisher
Hennessey scored it 50-50 on points; Fisher favored Edgar 52-48; and Lenahan picked LaMotta 53-47. It was an intense battle held in 52 F weather. Nearly everyone at ringside thought that LaMotta had won and a scoring error was suspected, but a recount failed to locate a mistake. The Detroit News had LaMotta winning seven rounds to three. "It was the sort of fight that invites scoring differences. There were no knockdowns, no developments that could be cited as conclusive evidence that one man or the other was entitled to preference. It was simply a bruising brawl in the pattern of the two previous engagements between the same contestants."

Attendance: 14,755; Gate: $74,434. Robinson's best round was the sixth. LaMotta rallied furiously in the 9th, 10th, and 11th rounds. "The fight followed the usual pattern (of the previous four fights between the two), Robinson flashing style in the early heats, then coasting when he could. Jake set out in pursuit at the opening bell and bored in with bulldog tenacity throughout." The decision was disputed. Afterward, Robinson said "This was the toughest fight I've ever had with LaMotta."

Costner started fast and would have won the first round but for a no-count knockdown. LaMotta took charge in the second. Costner changed his tactics in the third round and fled before LaMotta's advances, landing left jabs and brief flurries, but not able to evade Jake's body attack. George started to tire in round four. LaMotta let up in the fifth, but mounted a murderous attack in the sixth. Costner became an easy target and was dropped for a nine-count midway of the round. His left eye was closed and he was trying to quit when he arose, but LaMotta knocked him down again before the referee could stop him. Costner was counted out. Attendance was 11,115 and the gross receipts were $45,485.

It was a close fight for five rounds, a fierce struggle that kept the fans in an uproar. Reeves kept inside LaMotta's swings and jarred Jake with right and left uppercuts to the head. But he slugged it out with LaMotta in round four, a hint that he was tiring and becoming desperate. In the sixth, Reeves was floored for a one-count by a left to the head, but didn't seem unduly hurt when he arose. Then LaMotta unloaded a left to the chin and Reeves went down on his face. He tried to get up but was still on the floor, blinking his eyes and shaking his head, when the referee counted ten.

Robinson was floored for a nine-count in round seven and said later "He really hurt me with a left in the seventh round. I was a little dazed and decided to stay on the deck.." Robinson's best round was the fourth in which he hurt LaMotta. It was a polished performance for Robinson, who outboxed LaMotta most of the way with a dazzling left jab and jarring uppercuts..

Robinson was knocked down through the ropes in the eighth, being saved by the bell at the count of nine, after taking a right to the head and a left to the body. Referee Hennessey gave LaMotta five rounds including the last four. He gave Robinson four and called one even. Two other judges gave the same scores. The much heavier LaMotta charged Robinson at every opportunity with bull-like rushes. Robinson tried to outbox his shorter opponent but had a lot of trouble keeping him at bay.

Hayes was floored four an eight-count in the second round. After that he held LaMotta off until the sixth. In the sixth, Hayes was floored with a left to the body and the referee stopped the fight in with just three seconds remaining in the round. Hayes's manager, Lee Jones, claimed a foul, but an examination failed to turn up evidence of a low blow.

Edgar's boxing style was similar to that of Joe Louis; "both of them seek fistic success by standing flat-footed and raking their opponents with hard counter-punches..Neither bothers much with clever footwork. They are offensive fighters who depend upon power for their victories." LaMotta prefers to put his head down, tuck his chin in and charge into his opponents..He threw Edgar off balance and took the sting out of his punches. Edgar didn't have the footwork to get away from him; he had to stand his ground and punch with Jake, and that was what LaMotta wanted." There were no knockdowns but Edgar was hurt in round four and tired in the last three rounds. Even so, judge Frank Neville voted for him, but Referee Sam Hennessey and Judge Joe Lenahan scored it for LaMotta.

This was a sensational fight. "Edgar kept beating off the persistent rushes of the Bronxite." LaMotta opened up in the seventh round and kept up a pace that Edgar could not match. LaMotta won, but Edgar had a big disadvantage in the weight, considering which his showing was remarkable.

Reeves piled up an insurmountable lead on points in the first eight rounds, jabbing LaMotta constantly with his left and outspearing and outstepping him generally. The last two rounds were a slugfest, but Jimmy had paced himself better than in the previous fight.

Fists fights broke out near the ring and the crowd booed for 20 minutes after Cleveland's Jimmy Reeves received an unpopular decision over Jacob Lamotte(sic). The organist played the Star Spangled Banner to help quell the disturbance. (AP) For seven rounds, Reeves pounded LaMotta from pillar to post. The situation changed dramatically in the last three rounds. In round nine Reeves went through the ropes for a nine-count. In the tenth he was down four times, twice from exhaustion and twice from LaMotta's punches. Afterward the referee said that "The way I looked at it, Reeves had piled up such a big margin he seemed entitled to finish if he could. He was more tired than hurt." Reeves was on the floor when the final bell sounded.
