Madison Square Garden, New York, New York, USAWPTS1010
This was a sensational fight. "Edgar kept beating off the persistent rushes of the Bronxite." LaMotta opened up in the seventh round and kept up a pace that Edgar could not match. LaMotta won, but Edgar had a big disadvantage in the weight, considering which his showing was remarkable.

Arena, Cleveland, Ohio, USALUD1010
Reeves piled up an insurmountable lead on points in the first eight rounds, jabbing LaMotta constantly with his left and outspearing and outstepping him generally. The last two rounds were a slugfest, but Jimmy had paced himself better than in the previous fight.

Arena, Cleveland, Ohio, USALSD1010
referee: Joe Sedley | judge: Jim Parker | judge: Herb Williams
Fists fights broke out near the ring and the crowd booed for 20 minutes after Cleveland's Jimmy Reeves received an unpopular decision over Jacob Lamotte(sic). The organist played the Star Spangled Banner to help quell the disturbance. (AP) For seven rounds, Reeves pounded LaMotta from pillar to post. The situation changed dramatically in the last three rounds. In round nine Reeves went through the ropes for a nine-count. In the tenth he was down four times, twice from exhaustion and twice from LaMotta's punches. Afterward the referee said that "The way I looked at it, Reeves had piled up such a big margin he seemed entitled to finish if he could. He was more tired than hurt." Reeves was on the floor when the final bell sounded.
