1960-07-27Dick Richardson28-10-2
Coney Beach Arena, Porthcawl, Wales, United KingdomWDQ810x3
Richardson was down three times in the first round. After that he was "on the receiving end" as the fight degenerated into a half-wrestling and half-boxing contest.
Finally, Richardson was disqualified for a flagrant butt. A "disgraceful scene" ensued as Richardson's supporters hurled chairs, bottles, rain-soaked newspapers, and other debris into the ring.
(Description based on The Ring, October 1960, page 62.)
