History of Alan Alan Minter Boxing Career Set

Alan Minter Career Set won five boxing fights in a row by knockout and, in 1973, Pat Dwyer became the first boxer to go the distance with him, over eight rounds. Alan Minter won his next five boxing fights, three by knockout, before tasting defeat for the first time after the referee stopped the fight in the eighth round to King George Aido due to bad cuts suffered by Alan Minter. Two more wins followed before facing Jan Magziarz, who beat him twice in a row again due to cuts.
1974 was a diverse year for Alan Minter, defeating Tony Byrne by a result in eight, losing in two to Ricky Torres again on cuts, having a third fight with Magziarz result in a no boxing fight in four rounds and closing the year with a win in eight rounds by result in his first worldwide fight, against Shako Mamba in Hamburg, Germany.In 1975, he won four fights in a row, including another boxing bout in Hamburg and, by the end of the year, he challenged Kevin Finnegan for the British boxing Middleweight title, captivating it by a 15 round decision. In 1976 he won six fights, to extend his streak to ten successive wins.These wins gave Alan Minter a status among the top ten boxing Middleweight challengers.
In 1977, he won the European boxing Middleweight title by beating Germano Valsecchi by a knockout in five in Italy. But in his next boxing fight his winning line ended when he lost to former world title challenger Ronnie Harris by a knockout in eight. Alan Minter returned to top ten contender status by upsetting the former World Welterweight and Light Middleweight Champion Emile Griffith with a ten round decision win in Monte Carlo, but then he lost his European title to Gratien Tonna by a knockout in eight at Milan. He closed '77 with a third 15 round decision win over Finnegan to retain his British title.
1978 was a bad year for Alan Minter, even though he won all three of his boxing bouts. On 15 February, at the Muhammad Ali vs Leon Spinks I undercard in Las Vegas, Nevada, he won his first bout in the United States by knocking out Sandy Torres in five. Then, he went to Italy once once more to get back his European Middleweight title by knocking out Angelo Jacopucci in twelve rounds. Jacopucci died a few days afterwards, due to injuries sustained in the bout. Alan Minter completed his year by avenging his loss to Tonna with a six round boxing knockout.
In 1979, Alan Minter won all four of his boxing fights, two of them by knockout. On 16 March 1980, in Las Vegas, he was given a attempt at World Middleweight Boxing Champion Vito Antuofermo's title at the Caesars Palace. He won the title by a 15 round result and, in a rematch, he retained the world title by a TKO in eight rounds. Alan Minter's run as world boxing champion came to an end on 27 September of that year, when he was stopped on cuts in three rounds to Marvin Hagler at Wembley Arena in London. After the fight was stopped, Alan Minter's followers caused a riot, throwing beer cans into the boxing ring and both boxers had to be ushered away by the police. Earlier to the fight, Alan Minter made the obviously racist statement on the BBC that, "that black man is not going to take my title away." He later retracted this statement and said he meant "no man" is going to take my title away.
