Here's the fight as I saw it.-Green are the round scores as I scored it, red is important text like a cut, great punch or knockdown.
I do not have a tape of this fight, the only one of the 32 fights I haven't seen. I have one report that says it was a 10 round fight and another that says it's a 12 round fight. I would assume it would be a 12 round elimination fight since the last two of Lyle's had been that way. Ron Lyle wins a decision in this fight to continue his move up the rankings towards a title shot and continue Ellis' slide from prominence. Ellis would only fight 3 more fights going 1-2 and Lyle would have many more big fights including a chance at the title against Muhammad Ali.
