Chicago Stadium, Chicago, Illinois, USALUD1010
referee: Joey White 49-51 | judge: William O'Connell 44-56 | judge: E. Allen Frankel 48-52
"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)
