WAS THIS THE WORST FIGHT EVER ON TV?
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.
