Line 1: Line 1:
1972-01-15 Joe Frazier w rsc 4 (15) Terry Daniels, Rivergate Auditorium, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - WORLD. Referee: Herman Dutreix. Admittedly Daniels (195) was not the greatest of challengers, but after Frazier (215½) had given the millionaire’s son a sound beating after staggering him with the first blow of the fight it was clear that it would take a very good man to take his title away from him. Punching away viciously, Frazier had Daniels down from a left hook to the head just as the bell rang to end the first session and although the latter escaped being dropped again in the second he was twice smashed to the floor in the third. Although coming out for the fourth, Daniels was soon floored by a whole battery of punches and on getting up and being belted non-stop on the ropes the referee had seen enough and stopped the fight at 1.45 of the round.
