Boxing – 1985 – Jim Lampley + Alex Wallau Interview + Highlights Of Mark Breland Vs Darryl Anthony


ABC Sports boxing broadcast team of Alex Wallau and Jim Lampley provide their thoughts about the just finished 6 round welterweight bout between Mark Breland vs Daryl Anthony….followed by highlights from the fight….and an interview with Breland the winner. 

ImaSportsphile has a good number of Mark Breland fights….both amateur and professional…..and it is this lil ole chiweenie Sportsphile’s opinion that he was a much better amateur than pro….even though he did win the WBA Welterweight World Championship.  Now don’t get me wrong….Breland was really good….but not great as a pro….but as an amateur, he was outstanding….with a record of 110 – 1….and being a 5 time New York Golden Gloves Champion….we are of the opinion that he underachieved as a professional with a career record of 35 – 3 – 1.  Regardless, we are delighted to have the various amateur and professional bouts of Mark Breland….as he was a boxer and champion that deserves his place in boxing history.
