    "Eduardo Lausse, from Argentina, won his 30th straight bout tonight on a unanimous decision over Gene Fullmer of West Jordan, Utah, in a 10 round battle at MSG. Although the left-hooker from Buenos Aires was sliced around the right eye in the 5th round, and shaken by Fullmer's right hand in the 3rd, he raked the American down the stretch. Lausse dropped Fullmer in the 8th round with a solid left hook and the knockdown counter got as high as 'four' before referee Mark Conn ruled it was no knockdown. It appeared to be a clean knockdown to most of the crowd of about 4,000 who paid app. $11,000 to see the nationally televised match. For one stretch of about 30 seconds in the 7th round, the two men stood up and traded punches freely without backing up a step. Through the last three rounds, Lausse rained steady punishment on Fullmer, a game lad who was losing his third fight in 35 starts." -Associated Press

    Guy was like a piston. His movements actually remind me of Turpin, in a way.

    His defense is a bit odd (good weight transfer though as you said) but very cool.

    That video doesn't show much of the fight, but Milo Savage looks like a good fighter too. I'd never seen him fight, he is mostly known for fighting a boxer vs. grappler fight with Gene LeBell. Savage gave up a lot of size in that one, plus I think he wore boxing gloves so after LeBell grabbed him there wasn't much he could do.

    I like the way Lausse keeps his punches short and tight. Few if any of his punches are "outside" of his body. One trainer I had always told us that if you get hit with a punch from outside the body, you have to be closing your eyes and you deserve to get hit. Lausse keeps his elbows against his body and turns his body to get his punching position and his power. He fights like a NYC 50s fighter. I'd be surprised if he didn't train in NYC or have a trainer from NYC.
