1973-11-17 : Ron Lyle 212½ lbs drew with Gregorio Peralta 201½ lbs by PTS in round 10 of 10

  • Location: Frankfurt, Hessen, Germany

"Ron Lyle of Denver was a disappointed, frustrated fighter Sunday after his 10 round heavyweight bout against Gregorio Peralta of Argentina had been declared a draw. Peralta scored well in the first four rounds, when he peppered Lyle with quick punches and feinted and danced out of the way of Lyle's jabs. But Lyle came back in the later rounds, launching a fierce body attack in the seventh round. At the final bell, Peralta had a cut right eyebrow, swollen cheeks and was covered with body bruises. The announcement of the draw surprised even the pro Peralta crowd of 5,000 at Frankfurt's Festhalle Arena. The Argentine smiled with obvious relief while Lyle shook his head and raised his arms in insistence of victory." -Associated Press

  • Unofficial AP scorecard - 6-3-1 Lyle

  • "Lyle beat Peralta without respect or pity. It will remain a secret how the ring jury decided on a draw." -The Frankfurt Allgemeine Zeitung
  • "I paid $325.00 in ring fees and the jury wouldn't even let me look at their scorecards. Ron will never fight in Germany again unless we get a guarantee of neutral officials." -Irwin Rosee, Lyle's manager
