Having overcome an injured back and nose suffered in training, along with personal problems, the champion was not at his best in this one and King (175) made good in the opening three sessions. Showing a distinct lack of defence, Michalczewski (175) took far too many punches needlessly and suffered a cut right eye in the second round following a head clash. In the fourth, Michalczewski finally got going, with heavy rights and lefts finding the target, and in the seventh the tiring King was rescued by the referee on the 28 second mark. At that point King was in real trouble, having been hit on the temple by heavy lefts and rights and was unable to defend himself properly.
