"Ralph (Tiger) Jones avenged two previous losses with a split decision over Joey Giardello in a 10 round fight Wednesday night. Jones battered a cut over Giardello's eye in the 4th round and pounded away at it the rest of the way. Giardello couldn't keep away from his agile opponent and got a cut over the other eye late in the match. Jones forced Giardello against the ropes time after time and jolted his heavier opponent constantly with solid rights and lefts, many of them body punches. Giardello rallied in the 7th and 8th rounds and staggered Jones, but he wasn't able to keep it up." -Associated Press
