This was SO not a dive!

Re: This was SO not a dive!

 

In the Pantellic fight, I think that's just a bad camera angle. If you freeze it just at "the moment of impact" it looks to me (clearly) like the glove came up & connected with the chin.

 

Dives happen all the time, but not this time. The title of this thread is, ironically, correct.

Re: This was SO not a dive!

 

I always thought Willie Pep's against Lulu Perez looked pretty convincing, even though nobody bought into it and Willie was suspended.

Punch is at the 1:36 mark.

 

--- Reading up on the fight and the conditions were similar to Wlad/Brewster I. Big money mysteriously flooding the bookies causing some of them to suspend bets in the final leadup.

 

Also looks like Pep is sleepwalking and it took some punches to wake him up, but those were serious punches, esp for the 3rd knockdown. I'd bet anything he was drugged because he never looked like Pep from the git go. Also he had logged some 50+ rounds in the 3 months before this fight and was 34 yrs with 190 bouts under his belt, most every one going the distance. This is post airplane crash, post 5 brutal fights with Saddler.

 

Something got to him, but I doubt he threw the fight, he just wasn't there that night when the bell rang.

LRR-

He was warned ahead of time by the Commission (because the odds had changed so dramatically when all kinds of money started flooding in on Perez) that consequences of a dive would be extreme. I think that made it a case where no matter how Willie was knocked out, the simple fact that he WAS knocked out was going to bring a suspension. I think you might be on to something and maybe he got something in his water bottle, that type of thing was more prevalent back in the day. From the opening bell he didn't seem right, and considering the warning he'd been given, the pressure was on to "make it look good". If it was a fix, and they knew the commission was on to them, then they'd have had Willie box circles around Perez for several rounds before the KO shot, and that wasn't the case.
