Default Irish Bob Murphy vs Victor "The Animal" Galindez

Murphy was a murderous punching light heavyweight who was not able to win the title against the slickster Joey Maxim. He had 56 knockouts to go along with 65 victories. Split a pair of bouts with Jake LaMotta, which included a stoppage win for Murphy in their first bout. Knocked out the tough Danny Nardico in four rounds. Defeated the much larger heavyweight Dan Bucceroni by 5th round tko in 1951. Bucceroni was 31-1 at the time. Had trouble with slick boxers as evidenced by losses to maxim and Harry "The Kid" Mathews by decision also in 1951.


Galindez terrorized the 1970's with beating stalwarts like Ritchie Kates, Eddie Mustapha Muhammad, Yaqui Lopez, Pierre Fourie, Jorge Ahumada, Len Hutchins, and more. He lost and regained the title against Mike Rossman in 1978 before being bombed out by Marvin Johnson in 1979. He was 31 when killed in 1980 in an accident on a raceway in his native Argentina.


Murphy is the bigger puncher. Galindez is a rough customer with the more accomplished record. He was a champion. Murphy was not. But Victor was there to be hit. Will Murphy drop the hammer and kayo the Argentine? Or will Galindez outclass an over-matched Murphy?

Thanks dude! You know, Murphy also passed away very early after his career ended. I'm not sure how but this guy had been involved in many hellacious wars. He had a losing streak at the end of his career that tarnished his record a bit. By that time he was just burnt out.

I'll have to gather some info on Murphy, who I know little about.

There seems to be some similarites between Marvin J. and Murphy...

I'll take Galindez to pound out a close decision over 15 rounds, bounding off the ropes and counter punching Murphy silly in the later rounds.

I would go with Galindez to box his way to a decision win.

Interesting subject. I am not too familiar with Bob Murphy but upon brief examination, his resume looks solid. Was he an exiting fighter to watch?

There are vids of the LaMotta fights on youtube. Hard puncher, game.

Still pondering this one...

Was Murphy an exciting fighter to watch.? Hell yes, IF you did not have
heart problems ! Saw Bob Murphy fight and train and he was a southpaw
who never took a back step. Muscular and all heart. Sadly he died from a motorcycle accident...I have always dreamt of a "dream" match between
Bob Murphy and Mathew Saad...Timber...

I was wondering why he had such a young death. That is tragic. I'll have to watch some of the clips of Murphy vs Lamotta as someone suggested. You just don't see too many irish fighters anymore.

Murphy claims that Joey Maxim avoided Harry Kid Mathews like the plague for some reason. I think the reason was that Maxim could out slick just about anyone except a sage veteran like Archie Moore, great boxer like Harold Johnson, and Mathews who Maxim considered to be a very dangerous test for him according to the article on Murphy after his death in 1961. He also said LaMotta was by far the strongest and most determined man he faced. Not the hardest puncher though. That distinction belonged to someone who was not a household name and I cannot recall at this time.
