He landed an average blow and missed a punch. He landed a solid right and an average blow. He missed a shot and landed a body punch. Bob missed a blow, landed a partial connect, and missed a shot. Harris missed two blows and landed a solid shot. He missed a punch, landed a decent blow, and missed a punch. The clip cut out at this juncture.

From what we can see, it was a clear win for Harris. He landed a number of blows. Plager wasn't able to get many shots in. Ted took it to Bob in this one. The fight can be seen along with commentary from referee Dave Newell. Newell said that he would let the boys fight if it was between two guys of similar abilities. He said that the officials of the era looked to break up mismatches.

The hockey news had an article about this fight. Harris landed between 12 & 15 unanswered punches before this was broken up. The article said Harris even at his advanced age was still a great fighter.Reply

I was at that game. Most lopsided fight ever. Plager was helpless against Harris' reach advantage. Tried to head butt him. Saw him come to the box with welts all over his faceReply
