Netzer Takes a Loss

Middleweight Danny Netzer suffered his first career loss Tuesday night. At the Shaw Festival boxing event in Toronto, Canada, Phil Rose defeated Netzer by majority decision. One judge saw the bout as a 38-38 draw, but was overruled by the two judges who gave marked their cards 40-35 in favor of Rose.

Netzer was dropped late in the fourth and was also cut over the left eye, but gave a valiant effort in defeat.

Netzer, who had been badly outweighed in his first two fights, was 160.2 pounds while Rose was 157.8. Netzer falls to 2-1 with one KO; Rose rises to 4-1-1 with three KOs.
