  • Location: Kansas City, Missouri, USA

"Before a crowd of 6,000 fans in Municipal Auditorium, 24 year old middleweight Tony Chiaverini of Shawnee, Kansas, knocked out Tony Gardner of Memphis, Tenn., with a southpaw left hand to the chin at 2:25 of the 2nd round in the scheduled 10 round main event. Chiaverini set up Gardner with a body punch, driving him into the ropes before unloading the fight ending blow. The knockout punch contrasted dramatically with the slow first round in which only Gardner landed a solid punch." -Ring Magazine, May 1977 issue
