  • Location: Convention Center, Miami Beach, Florida, USA

"Dick Tiger stopped Florentino Fernandez in six rounds Saturday night in a bloody middleweight battle scheduled for 10 rounds. Tiger, British Empire middleweight champion, pounded Fernandez into submission and put him out with smashing lefts and rights to the face. Fernandez' nose was broken and referee Mike Kaplan stopped the fight at the end of five bruising rounds. It went into the books as a 6th round TKO. Tiger concentrated his two-fisted attack on Fernandez' face and piled up points with stinging lefts and rights to the jaw. Fernandez went for the body but the Tiger took everything the former Cuban tossed his way and never backed up." -Associated Press
