"Former middleweight champion Fred Apostoli, San Francisco, scored a 10 round decision over Georgie Abrams, New York, in a bruising battle before a capacity crowd at the Civic Auditorium last night. The pair punched each other steadily all the way, with Apostoli's devastating body attack earning him an edge in five rounds. Abrams floored Apostoli with a right to the jaw in the 5th round but the bell sounded before a count could be made. Referee Jack Downey took points away from the local fighter in the 5th and 6th rounds for low blows. Abrams had the shade in three rounds and two were fairly even. Apostoli pounded Abrams' side until it was raw and Abrams suffered a cut on the nose. Apostoli was stunned by the 5th round punch and reeled around the ring after getting up, but the bell had sounded. The decision met with some booing." -Associated Press
