    Joe Frazier vs Eddie Machen

    So I have the first round in Video but I am wondering if the whole fight exists in Video or at least Kinescope.

    Hello Bomma,

    To my knowledge all that I have ever seen of the Eddie Machen vs Joe Frazier fight is about a 12 minute highlight.

    Regards Mikey Capp

    I can confirm the first round in video is out there. I have it. It seems to be from a program demo or something. A very young Dick Dick Enberg does the play by play.

    Enberg was doing LA sports 65-75 before joining NBC. That bout of course was at the right place at the right time for him; 66 at the Olympic.

    He also hosted The Way It Was. Maybe a program demo for that?

    ESPN Classic Has run this fight at least 2-3 times in the last 6 months. last time was just a couple of weeks ago. You should go totheESPN site & check out the classic schedule. Sonner or later - probably- sooner since they run so few old time fights.

    Btw: I taped it & watched it & it really wasn't that great a fight.

    regards,

    GorDoom was it the film or the actual syndicated TV Program. By the way the name of this program is "Boxing from the Olympic" it was a syndicated show so who knows the tapes may still exist. CBZ actually did an story on the beginning of the show here
