"In an earlier fight, 19 year old Charlie 'White Lightning' Brown scored a controversial 10 round decision over Frank Newton. Brown appeared as shocked as everyone else at the decision while Newton and his handlers protested loudly. Newton seemed to have won the first four rounds, easily rocking Brown with rights and opening cuts under both eyes as Brown also bled heavily from the mouth. Brown countered in the middle rounds with jabs but continued to take a lot of punishment as both fighters tired in the final two rounds." -United Press International
