I wasnt at this particular event, but my father used to take me to the fights here. There were weekly fights on the beach at the convention center.

lefthook,

They were all promoted by Chris Dundee,,,,,,,,,who also was the co-promoter
for the Liston vs. Clay Heavyweight Championship Fight.

Those wrestling promoters knew all the 'gimmicks',,,,,,
'funny things getting put in the eye's'
'fake injuries'
'good guy/bad guy routines'
'proper camera angles'
'throwing punches'
'pulling punches'

Always leave the public asking for more.

Did you see the Wrestler with Micky Rourke? Pretty good flick about the whole wrestling circuit, just not the 70's scene.
