That's all that's available of Little, believe me I've looked. Benton fight was never filmed.

He is a Physical education teacher I've heard. Best bet is to track him down.

Thats not THE Freddie Little. Its his nephew (also named Freddie Little). The Freddie Little is retired (from the same school).

Good luck getting in touch with him but he doesnt respond to inquiries.

Awww man that's a shame. Still, will chase it up. Even if his nephew can pass our gratitude onto Mr. Little that'd be a fine achievement.

With colelctions held by networks, such as GSV-7 in Australia or ESPN (do they still hold it?), you do not have to have a formal agreement or a change in policy on their part to access it.

You need only to know someone with access to their archives, or a reason to access their archives. Until he became tired of being my lackey, I had a guy who worked in Aus Foxtel taping various fights that appeared on Fox Sports between about 2000-2002.

He never obtained permission, he jsut went in, ran the tape and as far as I know just dubbed it....this was onto a cheap, shitty little VHS. I would expect that there would be people similalry willing to copy rare fights from whatever networks archives, so long as they didn't end up being sold for profit and were geneuinely about the fights and not their percived value. Christ knows what/how much these techies are dubbing/burning anyways...

All it takes is a little networking, - six degrees of seperation and all that.
