July 31, 1981 (Page-Cummings, part 3)

Round 5


Realizing he's falling behind, Cummings attempts to charge inside and impose his will. Page muffles the first two charges with clinches, but meets the third with a flat-footed combination that drops Cummings with a heavy thud.

Jumbo bounces up at the count of three, but wobbles forward when Rozadilla waves the fighters together.

After further shaking Cummings with an uppercut, Page delivers an overhand right that lands dead-center, putting Jumbo on the floor again. He scrambles up at the count of just two and beats a shaky retreat for the last 20 seconds of the round, successfully avoiding a third knockdown that would have been an automatic stoppage under World Boxing Association rules, which are in effect for the three televised fights.

Unofficial scoring: Trunzo gives Page a 5-3 round for a 24-21 overall lead, but the two knockdowns would likely cause most judges to make it 5-2 ...

July 31, 1981 (Page-Cummings, part 4)

Round 6

Sensing that Cummings is badly hurt, Page comes out flat-footed and throwing bombs. After landing an uppercut to the body, though, the strategy nearly backfires when Cummings finally connects with one of his wild rights, sending Page into the ropes.

Page quickly recovers and begins working in shots to the body with straight rights, which can't seem to miss Cummings' jaw.

In danger of going down again after eating another combination from Page, Cummings lands a left hook that rattles Page in the round's final seconds.

Round 7

Having tasted the power the ex-con possesses in both hands, Page comes out aggressive, but more controlled.

His jabs to the body set up a left hook to the side of Cummings' face that sends sweat and spit flying over the first few rows of ringside seats, then follows up with a grazing right uppercut and a paralyzing left hook to the ribs.

Immobilized by Page's body work, Cummings stands and throws, but lands little beyond a jab to the belly. Page finds his stationary target with an uppercut that wobbles Cummings and a thumping right that drops him for the third time.

Cummings uses the ropes to get to his feet as Rozadilla's count reaches four, but Page has no intention of letting him escape.

Cummings tries to save himself by clinching, but can not pin Page's arms down long enough to prevent further damage, though Rozadilla does warn the attacker for holding and hitting. As soon as the fighters separate, though, the onslaught continues. Finally, after Page snaps Cummings' head back with an uppercut, Rozadilla steps in and wraps his arm around the beaten fighter, just as he begins to sag to the canvas.

After Cummings is helped to his corner, Michael Buffer makes the announcement:

"The winner by technical knockout at two minutes and 57 seconds of the seventh round, and still undefeated, Greg Page!"

Good work by Page against a hard hitter. Personally I think he hits harder than Ali did at this stage in his development.

(cue Howard)



Having seen the undefeated Greg Page dissect and then demolish the heavily muscled hulk who is Floyd "Jumbo" Cummings in a fashion not dissimilar to the form once shown by another Louisville product tutored by Angelo Dundee, we turn our attention to the fight many of you have been waiting for: the 10-round heavyweight bout pitting Gentleman Gerry Cooney against Bernardo Mercado -- the top-ranked contender and the man formerly ranked No. 1.

Will Cooney, the hottest commodity in the division since a Philly fighter named Balboa, prove the same destructive force he was two months ago against Kenny Norton when faced with a foe who can still hold his hands up in defense AND actually throw a punch on occasion? We shall see, after this message from our sponsor.

July 31, 1981 (Cooney-Mercado)

Round 1


The fighters charge from their corners and meet at ring center, where Cooney throws a right to the body that backs up Mercado.

Cooney drives the Colombian into the corner with a left jab-right cross combo and when Cooney wobbles his target with a left hook to the side of the head, it looks like the Norton slaughter all over again.

After escaping the corner, Mercado -- still along the ropes -- takes a jab to the body, then another to the head before clinching.

After Arthur Mercante separates the pair, Cooney misses with a jab and grabs Mercado, forcing the veteran ref to intercede again.

After making him miss another jab, Mercado connects with a thunderous uppercut that wobbles and nearly drops Cooney. Forced into reverse for the first time anyone can remember, Cooney looks lost as Mercado feints a body shot with the left, then redirects a hook to the jaw.

Wide-eyed as Mercado charges in, Cooney grabs him around the shoulder and swings him like a dance partner into a neutral corner.

Moments after nearly going down himself, Cooney misses with the hook but unloads a short, straight right to Mercado's jaw, the collision costing the Colombian his equilibrium.

Mercado rises at three, but is still struggling to steady himself when the bell rings just as Cooney begins marching purposefully toward his wounded opponent. Mercante jumps in and redirects Cooney to his corner as Mercado staggers toward his ...

July 31, 1981 (Cooney-Mercado, part 2)

Round 2


Cooney again marches across the ring at the bell. This time, Mercado tries to fend him off with a jab, but Cooney blocks it and delivers a jab-right cross-right uppercut combo that puts his opponent back along the ropes.

Mercado lands a jab, but doesn't pull it back quick enough to avoid another hurtful uppercut. Another uppercut sets up a left hook, bringing the sell-out crowd at The Spectrum to its feet.

Things quiet a bit as Mercado holds on. After they break, Cooney again scores with the right, evidently determined to show that he's more than a one-armed freak.

Mercado takes a jab and answers with two lefts to the body, slowing Cooney for a moment, and the two are trading punches at the bell.

Clearly Cooney's round, but Mercado seems to be finding his legs.

Unofficial scoring: Dave Rodman has it 10-7, using Pennsylvania's 5-point must system.

July 31, 1981 (Cooney-Mercado, part 3)

Round 3


This time, it's Cooney who looks a little tentative leaving his corner. And Mercado pounces.

Mercado hooks the hooker, wobbling Cooney and driving him to an unfamiliar position against the ropes. He waves Mercado in, and the sudden aggressor is eager to oblige the macho gesture.

Mercado lands an overhand right, then a right uppercut, then a vicious left to the ribs that sends a staggering Cooney into his opponent's corner, his back nearly turned.

Mercado lands a hard cross to Cooney's exposed side, then a crisp jab to the chin after a desperation left by the wounded fighter misses.

Mercante moves in and starts looking closely at Cooney, as a growing segment of a crowd that had been stunned into silence begins to roar in anticipation of an enormous upset.

But as Mercado pursues his prey along the ropes, Cooney sets himself and slams home his trademark left hook. Now on unsteady legs, Mercado flails wildly with a few punches before the bell ...

Round 4

Both fighters miss several shots early on, before Mercado connects with a pair of body shots.

Cooney lands a damaging right uppercut, forcing Mercado to clinch.

Mercado lands a rare combination. After a clinch late in the round, Cooney connects with a three-punch salvo that again wobbles Mercado. Gerry follows up with a hard right, but the bell rings before he can continue.

Unofficial scoring: Dave Rodman has it 19-16, Cooney.

Round 5


Looking winded, even after the 60-second rest, Mercado grabs hold at his first opportunity.

A double-hook by Cooney lands flush, sending Mercado into the ropes. There, Cooney crunches another hook to the body, forcing Mercado to clinch again.

Cooney's jab sets up a solid right cross, but as he moves in, he is met with a right cross that sends him stumbling back to ring center. Mercado is now the pursuer and he follows up with a right uppercut, then, after missing a jab, a strong right cross.

The bell rings with Cooney pocketing another round, but looking far from invincible ...

July 31, 1981 (Cooney-Mercado, part 6)

Round 6

A pattern is forming here.

Cooney batters Mercado around the ring for the first two minutes, landing power shots that are countered only by lengthy clinches.

Just when it looks like he's got nothing left, though, Mercado musters some hard punches of his own -- in this case, a jab-cross combo that forces Cooney to clinch.

So far, an impressive display of chin, heart and power by the underdog, but it looks as if he's reaching the point where he'll need a knockout to pull the upset.

Unofficial scoring: Dave Rodman has it 29-24, Cooney

Round 7

As the fighters meet at ring center, Cooney feints with his right, then rips a left hook that lands just above the belt line.

Just like he has every time he has been hurt, Mercado fires back, but misses badly with a hook to the head. Cooney answers with a straight right inside that snaps Mercado's head back.

Mercado scores with an uppercut, but an unfazed Cooney launches a left hook that seems to start inches above the canvas and sweeps the Colombian off his feet for the second time tonight.

Mercado lands hard near his own corner as the crowd, which has been roaring with every change in momentum, reaches a crescendo. With the help of the ropes, he makes it to his feet at eight, but Mercante takes a long look before waving Cooney back in.

The reprieve doesn't last long. Another low-starting hook sends Mercado tumbling into the ropes and Mercante intercepts Cooney's charge, deftly avoiding another Nortonesque near-decapitation by waving the fight over at 1:58 of the seventh.

Promoter Bob Arum, who visibly winced with each power punch landed by Mercado, is the first to reach Cooney after Mercante acts, joyously hugging the unbeaten Long Islander, his planned series of super-fights against Mike Weaver and Larry Holmes intact. If, that is, the WBA titlist can hold onto his belt against James Tillis ...

July 31, 1981 (Weaver-Tillis)

Round 1

Making the second defense of his WBA heavyweight title, Mike Weaver belies his reputation as a slow starter by coming out bombing at the opening bell.

A left hook to the body puts James "Quick" Tillis in a corner, where the unbeaten, but inexperienced challenger shows little savvy, getting barraged by body shots with both hands, mixed with left jabs.

A left hook followed by a right cross sends Tillis into the ropes, but Weaver is over-anxious and misses with several wild shots, allowing the challenger to counter effectively.

Weaver hammers a left hook to the jaw to regain control late in the round.

Round 2

After an even exchange of punches and a couple of clinches, Weaver knocks the wind out of Tillis with a right to the belly.

Tillis lands a straight right inside a wild left hook, but Weaver recovers his aim with a hard jab and another right to the body, hurting the challenger.

A brutal left hook has referee Stanley Christodoulou moving in to look more closely at Tillis, who takes a hard right uppercut to the chin before the bell.

Unofficial scoring: Ringside analyst Rocco Del Sesto has it 20-18, Weaver.

July 31, 1981 (Weaver-Tillis, part 2)

Round 3

After throwing a lot of punches in the first two rounds, Weaver is content to box from the outside and Tillis is willing to let him. Weaver lands several jabs and a right uppercut early in the round, then the two spend the better part of two minutes feinting and clinching.

In the late going, Tillis fans with a left-right combo and Weaver counters with an overhand right that wobbles the challenger, sealing a slow round.
Round 4

"He's got nothing -- get him outta here!" trainer Johnny Tocco screams at Weaver in the corner, and the poor man's heavyweight champion does his best to comply.

Weaver works the body with both hands, then jars Tillis with a stiff left jab. A double left hook staggers the challenger and a third sends him stumbling backward, then down.

Tillis gets up at the count of four, standing still and wide-eyed as Christoloudou waves them together.

Weaver misses with another hook, then Tillis fires away in desperation, landing enough to keep the champion from landing another power shot.

Tillis crashes again just before the bell, but Christoloudou correctly rules it a slip. Still, Tillis looks badly shaken as he wanders to his corner.

Unofficial scoring: Rocco Del Sesto has it 40-35, Weaver

Round 5

He looks exhausted and rather lumpy, but Tillis stands his ground and tries to slow Weaver with some effective body work, then scores with a clean right cross to the jaw.

Weaver again connects with the double hook, but Tillis continues to go toe-to-toe, landing a right uppercut flush.

But the challenger's best shot of the night has no visible effect. Weaver partially lands a right to the shoulder, then connects squarely with another right that buckles Tillis' knees, then drops him in a delayed reaction.

Again, Tillis makes it up at four, but quickly regrets his lack of savvy in not taking a longer count. Unable to tie up Weaver, he tries to punch his way out of danger, but the champion does damage with both hands.

A punishing left hook sends Tillis stumbling across the ring and Christodoulou leaps between the fighters and forces Weaver back before he can do further damage, ending it with six seconds left in the fifth round.

PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER


Knockouts by Weaver, Cooney

Set Up Super-fight This Fall

Things couldn’t have gone much better Friday night at The Spectrum for Mike Weaver, Gerry Cooney, Greg Page or the promoter who brought them all together, Bob Arum.

Earlier this summer, Arum ambushed arch-rival Don King by convincing Cooney – the consensus No. 1 contender and the hottest commodity in the heavyweight division – to delay an immense payday with World Boxing Council and lineal champion Larry Holmes in favor of pursuing the World Boxing Association crown held by Mike Weaver.

Cooney and Weaver each delivered impressive knockout victories Friday night, positioning their agreed-upon, but as yet unscheduled meeting sometime this fall as the biggest heavyweight bout since Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier met in Manila nearly six years ago – even though the true heavyweight champion will be watching and waiting for the winner.

Meanwhile, the division’s top prospect also reinforced his credibility. Page dismantled previously once-beaten Floyd “Jumbo” Cummings in seven rounds, improving to 17-0 with 16 knockouts, improving for the second straight outing since hiring veteran trainer Angelo Dundee.

Weaver delivered the most impressive all-around performance of his unlikely reign, battering James “Quick” Tillis through the first four rounds and finishing the formerly unbeaten contender in the fifth.
Finally facing an opponent still in his prime, Cooney overcame several scary moments by using his heretofore lightly regarded right hand to set Bernardo Mercado up for his trademark hooks. In the seventh, Cooney finally bludgeoned the former No. 1 contender into semi-consciousness with a series of lefts.

“Who needs Don King?” a gleeful Arum asked reporters assembled for the post-fight press conference. “We sold out The Spectrum tonight and I can’t wait to see the TV ratings. Fans care about fighters, not promoters.”

Page has reportedly rebuffed King’s advances to stay with promoter Butch Lewis, who struck a deal with Arum to get Page on the telecast.

“We’re going to have to sit down and talk about Greg’s future,” Lewis said. “He looked great tonight, but he and Angelo and I need to discuss where to take him next. Remember, he’s only had 17 fights. We don’t want to rush him into anything, but we don’t want to stifle him, either.”

As for Holmes, who stopped Leon Spinks in six rounds in June, he has said he wants to defend the WBC crown again before the end of the year. Names mentioned include the winner of next week’s bout between unbeaten Renaldo Snipes and two-time WBA challenger Gerrie Coetzee of South Africa (though the WBC’s announced boycott of fighters from that country could derail a challenge of Holmes), unbeaten Michael Dokes and Page.

That last possibility seems unlikely, since King historically demands future options on any fighter who challenges for a title held by a boxer under contract to him. Holmes, however, staged something of a revolt before his defense against Spinks and has publicly spoken out against his long-time promoter.

LOUISVILLE COURIER-JOURNAL


Page Gives Chaplin Rematch


Coming off Friday’s seventh-round stoppage of hulking Floyd “Jumbo” Cummings on national television, Greg Page will be looking to avenge the closest thing to a blemish on an otherwise perfect professional record on Aug. 22 when he faces the cagy George Chaplin for the second time.

When the two met in April 1980 at Louisville Gardens, Page escaped with a majority decision widely considered undeserved by the ringside press and even a fair portion of his hometown crowd. Chaplin remains the only fighter to go the distance with Page in 17 outings as a pro.

Since the defeat, Chaplin endured another controversial while settling for a 10-round draw against giant Jimmy Abbott in Johannesburg in May 1980, then was dominated in dropping a 10-round decision to another South African, Gerrie Coetzee, in Honolulu in March.

“George is a smart fighter and it’s tough to look good against him,” said Page, who will be defending his United States Boxing Association crown for the second time. “But I’ve learned a lot since then, and Angelo (Dundee) will help me find a way to get past his style.”

While Page’s two wins since Dundee joined his corner have come against Cummings and Alfredo Evangelista, each a plodding, straight-ahead banger, Chaplin is a more stylish counterpuncher who relies on movement and defense.

“The writers knew I beat him last time, and he knows I beat him last time,” Chaplin said. “This time, he won’t get home cooking.”

Page, who showed no signs of going seven rounds with a hard-punching convicted murderer just two days earlier during the news conference announcing the Chaplin fight, said he's not worried about taking two bouts so close together.

"I was ready to go 15 if I had needed to on Friday," he said. "I'll be even sharper in Atlantic City."


The rematch is scheduled for Resorts International Hotel in Atlantic City, three weeks and a day after Page’s win over Cummings, which cemented his status as the top heavyweight after WBC champion Larry Holmes, WBA boss Mike Weaver and top contender Gerry Cooney, who is tentatively scheduled to challenge Weaver in October.

In other heavyweight action in August, comebacking former WBA titlist Big John Tate faces Clayman Sandman Parker on Aug. 8 in Knoxville, Tenn., with the man he beat for the vacant belt in 1979, Gerrie Coetzee facing unbeaten Renaldo “Mister” Snipes a day later in Tarrytown, N.Y.


Other noteworthy bouts include unbeaten Michael Dokes facing Harry Terrell in a 10-rounder in Cleveland on Aug. 9 and Alfredo Evangelista, trying to come back from getting whacked by Greg Page in June, facing shopworn Terry Daniels in Islas Baleares, Spain on Aug. 29.


Also in action: Tony Fulilangi, Jerry Halstead, Young Louis, David Jaco, Larry Frazier, Johnny Warr, James Broad, Monte Masters, Marvis Frazier, Scott Frank and Tony Tubbs. And maybe a surprise or two.


The biggest non-heavyweight fight of the month comes on the 21st, when WBC featherweight champion Salvador Sanchez takes on Wilfredo “Bazooka” Gomez, the king of the 122-pounders, in the most anticipated fight under 135 pounds in years.

War Chaplin! Those decisions made me sick as a kid. But i wouldn't expect anything here with his game rating. Still have to back the hometown boy.
