The fix was in,,,,,,,,is an understatement,,,,,,,,,,,it was a 'Super Fix'
See, Lou Tress (Boxing Judge from Philadelphia)
A Philadelphia resident,,,,,scored it 145-143 (7-5-3) Alfredo Escalara
Everyone in Philly knew Lou Tress was bought for that fight.
He screwed his own hometown fighter.........
The shocking thing about his scorecard. Lou Tress was regarded
as a 'Homer', always giving the Philly fighters the close rounds.
He went completely against his previous history.
Insiders say he got a retirement gift from the WBC officials
and the Philly/Puerto Rican connection.
The 71 year-old Lou Tress had been judging fights since 1935.
The guy never judged a boxing match again.
