Bob Cleroux 205 lbs lost to Mike DeJohn 205 lbs by UD in round 10 of 10

"Mike DeJohn of Miami won a unanimous upset decision over Robert Cleroux of Montreal in a 10 round fight at Miami Beach Auditorium last night. There were no knockdowns in the nationally-televised fight. Cleroux, the Canadian heavyweight champion, waded in repeatedly, but DeJohn side-stepped and looked for chances to penetrate Cleroux's peek-a-boo defense. DeJohn, in the opening round, showed the results of rigid training as he danced his 205 pounds around the ring, leading the 205 1/4 French-Canadian around like a matador would a bull. Then DeJohn began stalking his opponent with left hand leads, right crosses and left hooks. The two threw the fight wide open in the 8th as they stood toe-to-toe and traded vicious blows. Cleroux maintained his professional record of never having been knocked down." -Associated Press
