Default Re: Sean O' Grady Discussion

It had to be 'money'

Both fighters got approximately $25,000 each as a purse.

Papa O'Grady knew Sean wasnt going to win, but it was hard to pass
up that kind of cash, for a 17 year-old.

It beats fighting 'third-rate Bantamweights in 'smoker bouts' at
the Red Carpet Inn in Oklahoma City for $300 a 'pop'.

The fight before Sean took on Danny 'Little Red' Lopez at 'The Forum'.

Tuesday Night - February 3, 1976 (Red Carpet Inn, Oklahoma City)

In front of a sparse crowd of 345 spectators, Sean O'Grady knocked-out (KO 2)
one Luis Martinez.

Luis Martinez, had not one professional bout, and had a 2-3 amateur record
at 112 lbs. (Flyweight).
