Description : Here we have an original vintage onsite boxing poster from Caesars Palace for the undisputed world middleweight championship bout between reigning & defending champion Vito Antuefermo & challenger Alan Minter, 16th March 1980.

England's Alan "Boom Boom" Minter won the undisputed world middleweight title by a 15 round split decision. The fight was a contrast in styles, with Minter, a classic stand-up boxer, using right jabs to keep Antuofermo at bay. But he couldn't do so all the time and the Italian-born mauler lowered his head and rushed in, frequently driving Minter to the ropes. The two fighters, both known as heavy bleeders, suffered cuts over their eyes. Antuofermo, dropped Minter down in the 14th round with a right to the body, but Minter, scrambled quickly to his feet. Minter was given an eight count although he claimed he had been pushed. Minter, aided by a lopsided score by a British judge, took the title from Antuofermo by a split decision in a 15 round nationally televised fight from Caesars Palace. The British judge, Roland Dakin, scored the fight 149-137 for Minter. Judge Charles Minker of Las Vegas scored it 144-141 for Minter, while judge Ladislao Sanchez of Venezuela scored it 145-143 for Antuofermo.
