1969-04-22 Joe Frazier w co 1 (15) Dave Zyglewicz, Sam Houston Coliseum, Houston, Texas, USA - NY. Referee: Jimmy Webb. A bad mismatch saw the wild swinging Zyglewicz (190½) challenge for the title without having any kind of name on his record, and within 20 seconds he was over from a Frazier (204½) left hook. Back on his feet, Zyglewicz was a sitting target. Then, after Frazier had softened Zyglewicz up further with blows to head and body, a smashing left hook to the jaw saw the latter crash to the floor to be counted out on the 1.36 mark.
