    Benn-Watson R4 although it’s probably mentioned I’m sure.

    Check this out. I have long been intrigued with this one. It is round 3 of Paolo Rosi v Len Matthews. It is the only round out there. I don't know if the rest of the fight went this way, but I would love to see it in its entirety to find out.

    Wow what a round! Great action, Rosi nailed Len with some vicious body shots.

    I did some reading and Len's story is incredible but brutal. There isn't much about the Rosi fight but a small article saying "A savage beating by Paolo Rosi in Madison Square Garden forced Matthews’ suspension by the New York Commission which requested that Len undergo electric brainwave tests before he be allowed to box in New York again."

    Also in a 2 year span Len Matthews had 21 fights going (15-5-1 draw 6 KOs) including the brutal beatings to Ortiz and this slugfest with Rosi. The Ortiz beating alone was so severe I can't believe he didn't suffer permanent brain injuries.

    The first round of the fight between Engels Pedroza and Othal "Choo Choo" Dixon was a good one.
