November 2000 Results

Ken Norton defeats Tyrell Biggs by KO at 1:58 of Round 2
This one was over almost before it started as Norton flexed his muscle, making quick work of Biggs. Following the bout, in the post-match press conference, Biggs announced that he was done fighting in the UBF, after posting an 0-3-0 record, and is retiring from boxing.

In response, the UBF added a new fighter to their list of 40 contenders. John Joseph Killion aka "Jake Kilrain" of New York, NY will enter as the number 33 ranked contender in the UBF's rankings.

Arthur Pelkey and James Braddock fight to a Majority Draw
Judges: John Keane 95-95, Stan Christodoulou 95-95, Randy Ortega 98-92 Braddock
Some questionable scoring from a couple of the judges deemed this fight a draw. It wasn't a terrible result but most onlookers agreed with Ortega as Pelkey out-punched Braddock in only 3 of the 10 rounds.

Anthony Joshua defeats Buddy Baer by KO at 2:26 of Round 6
The only round in which Baer was ahead on punches was the one in which he was knocked out. Joshua established his dominance early, sending Baer to the canvas in each of the first two rounds before ending his night in the 6th.

Gene Tunney defeats Lennox Lewis by Unanimous Decision
Judges: Samuel Condi 97-91, Stan Christodoulou 97-91, John Keane 98-91
Gene Tunney found out just how difficult it is to knock Lewis down. Tunney used Lewis as a heavy bag for most of the night, landing 149 punches to Lewis' 83. Lewis never went down but Tunney did. Tunney hit the mat in the 7th round but was back to it after a 7 count. The fight tilted in the 2nd round as Tunney connected on 48 punches to just 7 for Lewis over the next 3 frames. From that point, it was obvious that Lewis needed a knockout, which he couldn't get, in order to win.

Title Fight
Champion Joe Frazier defeats Challenger George Godfrey by TKO at 1:15 of Round 4
The Champ made quick work of Godfrey in his first title defense. Frazier landed 54 punches in less than 3 and a half rounds while Godfrey only connected 12 times. By the end of the 3rd round, Godfrey had a swollen left eye and his right cheek had been opened in two different spots, nearly connectiong with one another. The Champion arrogantly bragged after the fight, "they (the UBF) forced me to defend my title before the end of the year. After fighting Jeffries twice, I wanted to take the rest of the year off so I took this fight and took the year off."

December 2000 Results

One year is in the books and 59 fight results have been recorded. The UBF has seen drama, controversy, a new champion and 3 retirements. Here's to a successful 2001!

Chris Byrd defeats Bryant Jennings by Split Decision
Judges: 95-96, 97-94, 97-95
The right fighter won this match but just barely. Byrd out-punched Jennings in 9 of the 10 rounds and wound up landing 111 to his opponent's 74 making the judges' scorecards a bit baffling.

Max Baer defeats Buster Douglas by Unanimous Decision
Judges: 95-93, 96-92, 97-93
Max earned the first victory in 5 tries for the Baer brothers, by landing 107 punches and limiting Douglas to 73 landed. Each fighter went down in the fight with Douglas kissing the canvas in round 8 and Baer in round 10. Baer was deemed fit to continue after a 9 count, barely avoiding taking the late loss. Douglas' corner disputed the ruling but to no avail. Asked after the match if he would consider retirement, Douglas simply said, "I've still got some fight in me."

Note: Douglas passed my retirement protocol but falling 4 losses below his win total will result in an auto-retirement so he must win his next match.

Henry Cooper defeats Ossie Ocasio by Unanimous Decision
Judges: 96-90, 96-90, 95-91
Henry Cooper was knocked down in the 3rd round and suffered a cut below his right eye that seemed to worsen in round 10 but he still got the better of Ocasio. In fact, Ocasio was much worse for the wear than Cooper as he was knocked down 3 times in the fight (rounds 2, 4 and 9) while suffering a cut above his right eye and a large gash above his left.

Muhammad Ali defeats Ray Mercer by Unanimous Decision
Judges: 99-91, 100-91, 100-90
Yeah, it was as lopsided as those ridiculous scorecards indicate. It felt like Ali was just determined to get another 10 rounds under his belt and not put Mercer out of his misery. Punches landed: Ali 154, Mercer 42

10 days after the bout, Ray "Merciless" Mercer announced his retirement from boxing. Mercer cited health concerns but pundits suggested the true culprits were eroding skills and a slide down the rankings. The UBF announced that Ukraine's "Doctor Steelhammer" Wladimir Klitschko will enter the rankings at #31 and is immediately eligible to fight.

Note: The reason for the "10 days" was that I had to let the card play out to determine if Mercer would indeed fall out of the Top 20. He fell to 21. I won't put anyone through the retirement protocol while they are still in the Top 20.

James Jeffries and Cleveland Williams bout ruled No Contest
It's been a bizarre start to the career of Big Cat Williams in the UBF. First he opens a gash over the eye of the heavily favored George Foreman in his debut causing the ringside doctor to stop the fight and then this. At 1:14 of the 2nd round, the intervention of the doctor disrupted another Williams fight. This time Williams unintentionally thumbed the eye of Jeffries. Unsafe for the former heavyweight champion to continue, the fight was ruled a No Contest. A rematch was immediately scheduled as part of a 6 fight card for January, pending medical clearance for Jeffries.

Technically, a Ruiz loss would put him just 2 losses over his win total (1-3-0) so he wouldn't enter retirement protocol, lol.

I'm excited about Wladimir too. Hopefully, his brother will join soon and they can square off at some point.

It's worth noting, as with Buster Douglas, it's not a guarantee that a fighter will retire if they fall into protocol. Most will but some won't. It's a formula I use that involves their "Will" rating and dice rolls. Mercer actually had very little chance of retiring but did anyway.

On a side note, I'll be posting January 2001 results shortly and the Tomato Can set is not out quite yet. To keep from waiting for it, I'm going to track back to January 2000 every occurrence of a fighter being "owed" a fight against an unranked opponent (Tomato Can) and start making those fights up as I can. Right now, 16 such fights are in the queue.

What this means is that when the Tomato Can set is released I will probably have 2 fight cards per month until the backlog is caught up. One regular card and one with "past due" unranked fights. I hope that makes sense.

The good news is some guys will start to build some numbers. For example, Gene Tunney is 4-0-0 and is already owed 2 fights against Tomato Cans. By mid 2001, if he wins his ranked fights, he could be 8-0-0 and possibly have 11 or 12 results by the end of 2001.

Re: Unified Boxing Federation (Glory Days Boxing)

January 2001 Results

John Ruiz defeats Al Palzer by TKO at 2:06 of Round 8
In an evenly fought bout, John Ruiz outlasted and put down Al Palzer. Palzer looked in to be in control for the first 4 rounds but in the sixth round everything changed, Ruiz landed an astonishing 26 punches in the round while Palzer, relegated to covering up and trying to survive, could not land a single one. When the 8th round began with a 9-0 assault by The Quiet Man, the referee had seen enough.

A day later, Al Palzer announced via press release that his boxing career is over. His final record in the UBF is 0-3-0. The federation announced just hours later that entering the Top 40 Rankings at #31 is promising Brooklyn, NY born fighter "Iron" Mike Tyson. Tyson will be eligible to fight as soon as February.

Max Schmeling defeats Jim Flynn by KO at 0:10 of Round 7
Flynn's debut started very strong, he landed 8 punches in the first round to Schmeling's 9. But round 2 set the tone for the relentless beating that followed with Schmeling scoring 22 punches landed to 0. By time Flynn was knocked out, the tally for the night sat at 101-13.

Rocky Marciano defeats Jerry Quarry by TKO at 1:16 of Round 6
Onlookers agreed that Marciano, who was knocked down in the 4th round for a count of 9, was headed for defeat if not for a second occurance of a cut above Quarry's left eye causing the stoppage and resulting in a TKO. Marciano held a slim 57-53 edge in punches landed, according to CompuBox.

Note: Marciano, due to some sketchy scorecards and the knockdown, was indeed trailing in this fight. Through 5 rounds, the judges had it 49-45, 48-46 and 50-44 all in favor of Quarry.

David Tua defeats Jameel McCline by TKO at 1:35 of Round 1
According to CompuBox, Tua had landed just 6 punches when he opened a severe gash above McCline's left eye. The referee stepped in and the doctor would not let McCline continue.

Note: McCline is now 0-3-0 but he did not enter retirement protocol because he is still ranked in the Top 20 (#19).

Abe Simon defeats George Foreman by TKO at 2:29 of Round 3
Hard luck big man George Foreman was the victim of another early TKO as Simon punched him into a daze forcing the stoppage.

Note: Another long odds loss for Foreman. I'm glad he has 2 wins so he's not in danger of retiring.

James Jeffries defeats Cleveland Williams by TKO at 0:14 of Round 9
Last month's meeting resulted in a No Contest but there would be no such luck for Big Cat this go 'round. Landing 98 punches to 40 for Williams, Jeffries bloodied his opponents nose in the 5th round, knocked him down for an 8 count in the 8th and then opened a gash above his left eye resulting in a TKO in the 9th.

I was excited to draw him as well!

Tyson has the Closer trait. This trait affects his opponents Will rating which is the driving force behind whether or not a referee (not doctor) stops a fight for a TKO.

Looking over his card, he is a 10* Ring General (each fighter has 1 to 10 *s) he has the highest punch Power rating that is given and is among the best at inside punching. His defense and counter punching are also very strong.

He's definitely a formidable foe capable of beating anyone but without doing a side-by-side comparison I'd say Ali, Tunney, Marciano and Frazier (off the top of my head) are all a little better overall.
