"Manny Gonzalez, 147, narrowly defeated Dario Hidalgo, 149, on a split decision in their 10 round boxing match at the Coliseum. There was a chorus of boos from the crowd of 3,000 as the result was announced. Boos echoed earlier in the 7th round when Gonzalez almost turned his back and walked away after Hidalgo connected with what appeared to be a fair left-right combination. One judge scored it for Gonzalez 97-94 and the other for Hidalgo by the same margin. Referee Earl Keel's 97-96 vote for Gonzalez decided it." -Associated press
