    Default Ibar Arrington vs "Irish" Pat Duncan

    It was a Saturday afternoon, I was about 12 years young, sitting alone on a cold day in my living room, Wide World of Sports was on, and the featured bout was "Irish" Pat Duncan vs Ibar Arrington.

    @Andre I curled up in the cold living room and sat back and enjoyed a stellar fight. I wish I could find a tape of it, it would bring bacl old memories. "Iriish" Pat nailed Arringotn with 3-.4- even 5-punch combinations, with Arrington using a weird cross-armed defense while his head snapped back over and over from "Irish" Pat's combos. This continued for most of the fight. Arrington tried some late-rallying bullcrap, mostly using triple jabs, with some success. When the bell ended the fight at the end of the 12th round (opr nwas it a 10-rounder? gotta check- BoxRec--- I WAS SURE "IRISH" PAT HAD DONE MORE THAN ENOUGH TO GET THE DECISION.

    The outrage of a 12 year old can be surprising. The judges gave it to Arington, after all "Irish" Pat had done to muss up his beak-like bird-like face of Ibar. I was outraged and wondered WHAT FRIKKING FIGHT WERE THE JUDGES WATCHING? I WAS SURE AT THE AGE OF 12 DUNCAN HAD HANDILY WON THE FIGHT.

    To this day I have been looking for a tape/recording of that fight. What a pleasure it would be @Greenbeanz to see that again after nearly 40 years. @Dia bando ytour stomach is bigger than all the rest and that includes Butterbean bwahahaa @greynotsoold what about in Butte? Aything up there bro? Cuz Im on my way pretty soon after touring Europe. @Bill Paxtom @denilson200 @orangeclock @sinister Snickers and the Milky Way Galaxy

    Can't find any video footage but you can buy an old Ring Mag and read the match report in there for less than $7 here

    Brockton Blockbuster,

    Nice Call........

    Saturday ~ November 20, 1976

    Seattle Center Coliseum ~ Seattle, Washington

    Fight Promoter > Elmer Boyce

    The 'original' Main Event was to be >

    Former Light-Heavyweight Champion - Bob Foster vs. Rafael 'Raffles' Gutierrez

    But the 'always irritable' and comebacking {Age; 38 years, 7 months} Bob Foster
    held out for more money {after signing a contract}, and walked out.

    'Sheriff Bob' had initially agreed to a $25,000 Fight Purse for an 'easy' tune-up bout.
    But then demanded another $5000.

    When he was told 'NO', he walked out.

    Bill, your nostalgia is giving life to this forum. Naming the venues, promotoers, etc... is pure boxing nostalgia. Love it

    Thanks 'Triple B'

    I think the 'flavor' of a particular bout is sometimes required.

    Fight Promoter > Elmer Boyce

    'Pacific Northwest Heavyweight Championship'
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Dale 'Ibar the Sailor' Arrington ~ 19-1-1 {12 KO's}
    vs.
    Larry 'Irish Pat' Duncan ~ 35-9-3 {27 KO's}

    Dale 'Ibar' Arrington {Age; 24 years, 11 months} from Everett, Washington
    was the hometown boy, and he was the 'Odds On' Favorite at 5-3 over Pat Duncan.

    They were trying to build him up in this Television Bout.

    'Irish Pat' Duncan {Age; 27 years, 11 months} was still a capable fighter,
    and could give any young, up-and-coming Heavyweight a tough go.

    'Irish Pat', a Carson City, Nevada native had just moved to Spirit Lake, Utah.

    Hey Bill, how on earth do you dig this stuff up? For example where Duncan had just moved his home to? etc. Awesome stuff.
