Re: Ruben" Hurican "Carter VS Jimmy Ellis KD in rd 4
It was only Ellis' 17th pro fight. He was 14-2 against good opposition.
Carter was 18-4, and had just KO'd Emile Griffith in 1 round !
I dont think this fight says anything about Ellis later on, or the heavyweights of the 1960s. Ellis improved after another 9 or 10 fights, and when he moved up from the middleweights.
