Jimmy Carruthers v Vic Toweel

This footage is pretty old, but, and please forgive the parochialism, but shows Australian Jimmy Carruthers fighting Vic Toweel for the World Bantam Weight Title in 1952.

At the time, Carruthers was very much the underdog – and most people expected an easy win for Toweel. But, as this footage shows, somebody forget to tell Carruthers that he was supposed to be a walk over.
