ANYBODY REMEMBER HOW BAD THIS FIGHT WAS?
San Francisco, CA- Without going into the many fights that have sucked on TV, the 1983 fight between a future heavyweight titleholder Trevor Berbick, the guy who lost the WBC title to Mike Tyson in two rounds in 1996, and a cruiserweight (190 lbs. then) champ in ST Gordon at the Showboat Hotel in.
IF YOU SAW IT YOU NEVER FORGOT
For the life of me, I can’t remember if ST stood for anything, but the ten rounder with Berbick has to go down as the worst ever on TV (ABC). I remember Berbick’s corner begging him, “Trevor, you’ve got to try.” Gordon won with unanimous scores from Lou Tabat 97-93, Chuck Minker 96-95 & Dalby Shirley 98-92. Berbick claimed afterwards that promoter Don King had poisoned him. Trevor was murdered
with a hatchet in Kingston, Jamaica in 2006. He was the last man to fight and beat Muhammad Ali in 1981.
