There was only one Gavilan-Turner fight, but yeah it's arguably the best fight I've ever seen. The exchanges are unreal. Forget anyone that says fighters are faster now.

As I said in another thread, Gil Turner was a welterweight Meldrick Taylor. He had phenomenal ability. Gavilan shows great poise and a great chin in this one. The way he takes out Gil is all class.

I watched that fight on the tube a few months ago.

Absolute classic IMO...Turner gave it his all but Gavilan to classy.

Gavilan's finest hour IMO. One of his best all-around performances, and a thrilling, decisive win against an unbeaten, highly touted challenger.

I think they only fought once.
It has long been one of my favourite classic fights to watch. Lots of skill, lots of heart and ferociousness from both men. Quite a brutal ending.

The full fight does exist.

I seen it plenty of times, great fight. One of my all time faves. Turner's battle with Carman is just as brutal.

my fault i got mixed up with Gavilan vs Graham.

Good comparison with Taylor he had very very fast hands and those flurries to the body looked brutal. I did like Gavilans composure in that one they was both seriously trading but The Kid picks his shots so well.

Have seen highlights have got the full fight on the way

One thing; to those who say Gavilan is NOT a puncher. Watch this! Gavilan has enough power to get to anyone, this fight shows that (even if Turner himself is not an 'ATG')

Gavilan is STILL a very, very underrated puncher in my book. All I ever hear from dicks is 'duhhh, but he's only got like 30-something K.O's from a hundred something wins'

The guy was a beast.

Gavilan can hit, Its just that most of the guys he face happen to have the best chins of all time about.

It would take a LOT of work to put Robinson or Carman down for a ten count.

Gav can hit but i think its more a combination of his speed, timing and accuracy not 'power' so to speak.

He's a very sharp hitter

also thanks M2S for that list of fights to check out
