Chicago Stadium, Chicago, Illinois, USALUD1010
referee: Norm McCaridi 45-55 | judge: E. Allen Frankel 45-55 | judge: Ed Klein 42-58
This was the first fight televised coast-to-coast in the United States. Sands mauled and cuffed Olson for nine rounds, and then Olson made a terrific rally in the last round, landing repeatedly with rights to the head that staggered Dave. But Sands was much too far in front for this rally to change the outcome. Sands was the better boxer and more precise hitter. It was a rather slow fight. The gross gate was only $5,832.
