I think I know which article you're referring to, mcvey. I believe it was in a special memorial edition published when Louis passed away. (The title of the chapter was, "Nobody knocked out Paulino Uzcudun!," and it showed a head and shoulders closeup portrait of Paulino posing in his cross-armed defense, and concluded with a shot from above and behind Louis standing over a prone Uzcudun lying nearly across the ropes?)
