On October 19, 1956 at Madison Square Garden in New york middleweights Gil Turner and Joey Giambra met in a featured bout. Giambra prevailed winning a close, split, ten round decision. "Sharpshooting Joey Giambra, Buffalo, NY, gained a split decision in 10 rounds with ever-hustling Gil Turner of Philadelphia last night at MSG. A 3-1 underdog and spotting his taller rival 7 1/4 pounds, Turner carried the fight all the way to his harder hitting rival. At the finish he was tired and wobbling but still firing away with both hands. Giambra let Gil have both barrels in the decisive final round but he could never make the veteran haul down his flag. Joey connected with at least 20 solid shots to Turner's jaw in that fiery finale to a blistering television fight and still couldn't floor him. Turner won his rounds on hustle. Giambra just had too much power." -Associated Press. Offered here is an original wire photo depicting 6th round action.
