1903-02-06Terry McGovern54-3-4
Industrial Hall, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USALNWS66
After a year out of the ring, McGovern returned to the ring wars to face an old rival in Joe Bernstein this being their third bout against one another; Terry won the previous two, the last by knockout. Industrial Hall was packed long before the main bout came on. At no point during the bout did Bernstein have an advantage and although he finished on his feet through six rounds McGovern gave Bernstein considerable punishment and beat him decisively. Joe did land some hard shots on occasion, but he always took a drubbing in return. Terry did most of his work to the body and it was evident that the “old power” still lingered in McGovern’s lethal fists and had any of the vicious body blows landed to Bernstein’s head he would have surely took a nap on the canvas. Joe was down for a nine-count in the fifth round, but Terry was unable to put him away as Bernstein still possessed the heart of a winner although he lost. Not being able to put Bernstein away also may have been because of McGovern’s lengthy hiatus out of the ring, but Terry was in splendid condition physically and he fought fast throughout all six rounds and looked as though he could have went several more rounds had the occasion called for it.
