The thing that gets me with this fight is not only is it exceptionally long - not the longest, that goes to another McSorley fight against Louie Debrusk
in 1992 - both guys are throwing pretty openly for the majority of the fight, just standing and trading with very little going on in terms of defensive fighting. Probert even drops McSorley at one point with a cross/uppercut combo, but McSorley gets up and carries on swinging away.
The aforementioned McSorley/Debrusk fight, from 1992:
A far less eventful fight however.
