This was a tremendous action fight. Maguire showed all kinds of courage by taking heavy incoming fire from Probert. He landed a good number of effective blows of his own. The first fifteen seconds of this contest was about as exciting as it gets.

Probie missed a punch and landed an average connect. Kevin missed a punch and landed an average blow. Bob landed a good right and Maguire was hurt. Probert followed up with a pretty good shot.

Kevin fought through the pain and had a good series of effective punches. He missed a punch and landed three solid blows. He missed a punch and landed a solid shot. Probie landed a solid blow and another good right that shook Maguire. He missed a punch, landed three solid connects, and landed two pretty good connects.

Maguire continued to fight as fiercely as he could. He missed a couple of punches, landed a couple of decent shots, and landed a couple of solid blows. He took a lot of abuse to land effective punches of his own. Kevin missed a punch and landed a solid connect. Bob landed two solid blows and missed a punch. He landed three solid connects.

Kevin missed a couple of punches, landed a couple of average blows, and missed a couple of punches. Probert landed a couple of average shots. Maguire missed a right hand. Probie missed a few. The men wanted to go on, but the refs decided to stop the fight.

I rate this as a clear win for Probert. Maguire landed several solid rights, but Probie's blows did significantly more damage and shook him a couple of times. Bob landed more quality punches and Kevin started to miss the target with more frequency as the exchanges went on.

Maguire showed a lot of courage. He got rocked a couple of times against a devastating puncher. He took a lot of punishment to land solid blows of his own. He fell well short of victory, but he gave an impressive showing in defeat that no one will ever forget.

Quite possibly the greatest fight by either man, including the Maguire-Churla and Probert-Coxe battles, this was epic.

What a battle. And with the legends Bruce Martyn and Paul Woods calling this epic made it that much better.

With a seemingly normal square off just to the side of the net, both warriors grab their opponents with the left and start blasting each other with rights without defense from either side. Probie landed a few dandy rights that wobbled Maguire, but he didn't go down. Kevin was throwing like he didn't get hit but it seemed he lost some power on his punches pretty quick after almost going to a knee. They continued to slug away with rights until the stripes got in. Probert got his revenge for Maguire suckering him the year before.

Amazing fight, I heard about it for years, and all I got to see was Bernie Smilovtz and the other locals show a short clip.

This in my opnion was an angry Probert. And he was an angry fighter in this fight, it almost always was a bad experience for his victim.

Win Probert in one the greatest T2T ever.

Great toe to toe fight. Slight edge Probert as he buckled Maguire at one point.

One of the best t2t fights I've seen. Probie did buckle Maguire for a second,( that's why I give him a narrow win) but Maguire did'nt miss a beat.

Boy, that's a good fight. Kevin Maguire with an excellent chin in this one. Looked like his legs almost gave out on him twice after big right hands from a guy with pretty well-respected knock-out power. Probie landed the better shots throughout though, so gets the decision.

What a toe to toe war as both trade just about the entire fight, it's a close contest as both are landing a ton of blows but Probert is landing the better shots rocking Maguire a couple times with hard rights that buckle the knees, those blows are the deciding factor that gives Probert the narrow win in an all time beauty.

I have the whole fight and the reviewer that judges a draw should be deleted. Ask a few more of the intelligent reviewers their opinion.Reply
