"European middleweight champion Alan Minter of Great Britain outpointed former five time world champion Emile Griffith Saturday in a 10 round supporting bout. The left-handed Englishman controlled the fight from start to finish, sending Griffith to the canvas with a left hook to the side of the head for a compulsory eight-count 20 seconds before the end of the 5th round. Only 30 seconds before that, Griffith, 39, took a standing count of eight when Minter, 25, caught him on the ropes with a combination of lefts and rights to the head." -United Press International
