Description : Here we have a super rare original onsite boxing poster from Caesars Palace Las Vegas 6th June 1981.

This was the final elimination bout between former undisputed world champion Alan Minter & WBC number 1 contender Mustafa Hamsho for the right to challenge Marvelous Marvin Hagler for the undisputed middleweight title.

"Britain's Alan Minter, his hopes for another title shot frustrated by a split decision loss to Mustafa Hamsho, said he did all he could to win the fight. Minter used his right jab effectively through out the middleweight elimination fight, but the relentless attack of Hamsho proved the difference in the scoring. In the 4th round a good left hook by Hamsho seemed to shake Minter but he responded with effective right and left combinations. The 5th was Minter's best round as he hurt Hamsho with a strong left hook followed by two right hands. Both fighters went toe to toe until the bell sounded to end the round. Minter was cut on the cheek in the 8th round as Hamsho began to dominate the fight." the judges scored the bout: Chuck Minker 97-93 / Hal Miller 97-93 for Hamsho, Jerry Roth 94-96 for Minter.

"What it seems like in Las Vegas is I can't score with the jab, I can only accuse the judging." -Alan Minter

"Alan won the fight, there's no question in my mind. I think this decision tonight is diabolical." -Doug Bidwell, Minter's manager
