1970-03-20 Freddie Little w pts 15 Gerhard Piaskowy, Sports Palace, Berlin, Germany - WBA/WBC. Referee: L. Sanchez Villard. Giving his challenger a boxing lesson, Little (152¾) sent out flicking lefts and solid rights without anyone realising that he’d fractured his left hand as early as the second, least of all Piaskowy (153¼). The European champion had gameness but little else and failed to win a round according to one expert’s view, which was a bit strange when the sole arbiter, the referee, had Little winning by just one round at the finish. It seemed that Little was carrying Piaskowy, having him groggy on occasion and badly swollen on the left eye, until the extent of his injury was known.
