Correct Curtis,,,,,,

An NBC Friday Night Series,,,

Wilfred won, and controlled the bout early, and then dominated it in
Rounds 6, 7 and 8.

'Kansas City' Tony, left his fight in the dressing room, as he never got off.

Wilfred was supposed to fight Rocky Mosley Jr. next, in October 1980 for
the NABF Light-Middleweight Championship. But, again Wilfred jumped ship
after signing the contract.
