    I was also a big fan of Curtis Parker. Here is his bout with Michael Olajide. I should mention that Parker had been off 7 months before this fight which was unusual for him and it showed. A lot of ring rust and blowing hard after a few rounds. A more active Parker would have taken Olajide IMO. But here we go. NJ rules of a round basis.

    Round 1: Parker
    Round 2: Olajide
    Round 3: Even
    Round 4: Even
    Round 5: Olajide
    Round 6: Parker
    Round 7: Olajide
    Round 8: Olajide
    Round 9: Olajide
    Round 10: Olajide

    Total: 6-2-2 Olajide (actual scores: 6-3-1 Parker and 2 scores of 6-3-1 and 7-3 for Olajide)

    It was officially a split decision for Olajide, which I think was way too kind for Parker. But a lot of close rounds so it depends on what you're looking for.

    Michael Spinks v Eddie Mustafa Muhammad

    Coming to the end of my light-heavyweights of the 70s/80s series of fights now - any more I watch of that era from now on will be when it takes my fancy rather than a dedicated effort to watch them. I've missed a few, either because they weren't available or I wasn't as enthused to see them but think I've caught most of the major fights. I think I've left this one till last because I suspected it wouldn't make for great viewing even though these two are top fighters. Let's see.

    1 10-10 (predictably uneventful round)
    2 10-9 (bit better than the first)
    3 10-9
    4 10-9 (close)
    5 9-10 (nice body work by Mustafa Muhammad)
    6 10-10 (pretty turgid)
    7 9-10 (close)
    8 10-9 (better from Spinks)
    9 10-9 (Mustafa Muhammad's right is shut)
    10 9-10 (close. Mustafa Muhammad woke up at the end of the round to just edge it.)
    11 10-10 (this feels like homework)
    12 10-8 (finally some proper action! Spinks drops Muhammad who survives but shows no fire and passively receives a bit of a beating for the rest of the round)
    13 10-9
    14 10-9
    15 10-9
    Spinks 147 - 140 Mustafa Muhammad

    Yep, pretty turgid stuff. Mustafa Muhammad gave a lacklustre performance and it was a pretty horrible style clash. No doubts about the winner though.

    Jel, I had it 145-141 for Spinks. A bit closer but obvious winner. I don't think Eddie was ready for this fight after his unsuccessful foray into the heavyweight division. But that's not to make excuses. Spinks came in ready to take that title and did so.

    Curtis Parker v Dwight Davison

    Haven't watched this fight since seeing it live in 1980. The battle of undefeateds. Here we go.

    Round 1: 10-9 Parker
    Round 2: 10-9 Parker
    Round 3: 10-10 Even
    Round 4: 10-9 Davison
    Round 5: 10-9 Davison
    Round 6: 10-9 Parker
    Round 7: 10-10 Even
    Round 8: 10-9 Davison
    Round 9: 10-9 Davison
    Round 10: 10-9 Davison

    Total: 97-95 Davison (actual scores: 97-93, 97-93 and 97-94 all for Davison)

    It's funny, but I always considered Davison to be a lazy fighter, despite this win. I remember his bout with Tony Sibson where Tony just wailed on him with Davison doing little. In this bout Parker started fast and looked like he was going to run away with it like he had been with his previous opponents, but then Davison really started to get leverage on those uppercuts to the head and body as Parker came charging in and Parker or his corner could never come up with a plan B. He really had one way of fighting - straight in. It's not like he was going to outjab Davison. But decent enough fight. It was over before I knew it.

    Rorschach, I just saw that you scored this fight too. We had it very similar.

    I’m surprised you had Spinks winning the first 4 rounds. Don’t have a score card handy but as I remember it Eddie was out-boxing him pretty comfortably in the early goings. Made for a much closer fight on the cards even though there was no doubt as to who was the winner.

    Dunno if I'm misreading pal, but I'm pretty sure he had the first four 3-0-1 for Spinks.
