Chicago Stadium, Chicago, Illinois, USAWUD1010
referee: Joey White 51-49 | judge: William O'Connell 56-44 | judge: E. Allen Frankel 52-48
"The 30-year old New Yorker, a masterful boxer, had no trouble in outscoring the willing but outclassed Basilio from start to finish. Graham, a dancing speedster, pumped tantalizing left jabs into Basilio's face until old cuts in Carmen's eyebrows oozed blood. Basilio's face was crimson from Graham's rasping right hand punches and straight lefts." (AP)
