Just bumped this because we were talking about Harada on another thread. Here's an interesting analysis of the Harada Rudkin fight from the very well respected Peter Wilson. I'll admit that his pick was in the minority but still he was sitting at ringside and got a better view of the fight than any of us.

An interesting take on it Alan. Ive always had it down as one of those close but competitive but clear decisions in that the action is tighly contetested in near every round but Harada always seems to take it about 9-6 or 10-5 on my card.

And where would his place in UK boxing history be if he had won and held the title for a few defences against this level of opposition?

I always felt Rudkin is a perfect example of a fighter who these days would be a champion but due to the strength of the era in which he fought with only one world title (as it should be!) was unfortunately relegated to just being a very very good contender.

Have to agree with this

Zarate's 'tache just gets better with age. And you can see how big he is compared to his rival Zamora.

I watched it again last night with Mr Wilson's write up in mind and I've got to say I could see what he was talking about especially the early rounds. You got to remember that there is a roar every time Harada lands anything and silence when my old fella scores. I would say that though wouldn't I!
I'd love to know what that commentary team are saying.
A mistake that me dad made in that fight was the Beatle mop haircut because it bounces every time he got hit. That is a serious comment by the way.

I know what you're saying, Al. I used to notice that with jerry Quarry back in the day as well. That hair would shake and "visually increase" the impact of the punch. Great pic, by the way and great seeing Petyer Wilson's write-up in Boxing News.

Funny you should say that because when he was in LA for the Olivares fight a few people commented that he looked like a smaller Jerry Quarry

I've heard commentators remark on how long hair emphasises the effect of punches.I agree with them ,and you.
