RAY MERCER vs. TOMMY MORRISON (PPV) 

Description : Here we have an original full-size TVKO boxing closed circuit fight poster for the WBO world heavyweight championship title bout held at the Convention Center, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA, 18th October 1991.

Robert Seltzer of the Philadelphia Inquirer reported: Mercer absorbed a left hook to the jaw early in the first round, his head whipping backward like that of a crash test dummy. The champion shook his head vigorously, as if to indicate that the punch had not hurt him, but it had. He knew it, and Morrison knew it. Morrison fought furiously in the second round, crashing hooks to the belly and uppercuts to the head. The champion jabbed and retreated, a strategy foreign to his brawling nature. He seemed confused, a warrior who was being forced to become cautious. The champion had taken poundings before, but never against such a heavy puncher. Could his chin and heart make make up for his lack of skill, as they had against Bert Cooper and Francesco Damiani? If not, he was in for a brutal beating.

Mercer rallied in the fourth round, landing an overhand right to the jaw that backed up his opponent for the first time in the fight. The champion, still retreating, scored effectively to the body and head. Morrison seemed weary late in the round, his mouth wide open as he gasped during a clinch. Mercer, charging out to open the fifth round, caught his opponent with an overhand right to the face. The challenger fell against the ropes, taking a brutal beating before the referee finally stepped between the two fighters. Morrison, his arm finally untangled from the ropes, dropped to his hands and knees, remaining on the canvas for a few minutes before getting up and leaving the ring under his own power.
