Dick Richardson, 201 1/4, Britain retained his European Heavyweight Title by knocking out Karl Mildenberger, 190 1/4, Germany, at 2:35 of the first round before a sell-out crowd of 16,000 in the Dortmund Westfalen Hall. A right cross as Milbenburger came off the ropes caught him flush on the jaw and he fell back as if pole-axed to be counted out.

Richardson was down three times in the first round. After that he was "on the receiving end" as the fight degenerated into a half-wrestling and half-boxing contest.
Finally, Richardson was disqualified for a flagrant butt. A "disgraceful scene" ensued as Richardson's supporters hurled chairs, bottles, rain-soaked newspapers, and other debris into the ring.-Boxing News August 5 1960 p 4
