Thanks Burt. There is a lot of misinformation about this and Marcel's fight with Anton Raadik.
The pro-Abrams crowd wanted Georgie to be given a draw because of his brave showing. But the majority of sportswriters said that Cerdan won a clear-cut decision and anything less than a win for him would have been a robbery.
