On August 21, 1971 at Peace Bridge Exhibition Center in Buffalo, New York former world heavyweight champion Floyd Patterson fought Vic Brown in the main event. Patterson won a ten round unanimous decision. Former heavyweight boxing champ, beating the bush leagues for a third crack at the crown he twice held, met with relatively unknown Vic Brown last night and came up with a unanimous 10-round decision. Patterson concentrated on Brown's body saying it was his "game plan" to offset Brown's southpaw punches. "I didn't do much jabbing," Patterson said, "because I heard Brown is a good right hooker." Patterson was credited by both judges with taking every round. Referee Art Mercante gave him nine and awarded one - the fourth to Brown, a 29-year-old from Buffalo. "No, I'm not fighting these fellows to make money," Patterson said. "All I want is a shot at the title." Patterson's sights were now set on matches with ex-champion Muhammad Ali and current titlist Joe Frazier. Offered here is an original, on site poster for this event.
