On one side sat defending champ Sten-Ake Cederhoek, 52, weighing 233 pounds. On the other was challenger Ake Eriksson, 33 and 229', Before them was a huge smorgasbord: Six varieties of fish, including raw halibut in mayonnaise; reindeer steak; pork back stuffed with phims; pressed calf's brain; ox tongue; varieties of pork, beef, chicken, turkey and duck, as well as sausage pies, salads, vegetables, sauces and assorted cheeses, fruits, nuts and raisins, coffee, beer and water. In the end if was a dainty pastry that meant the difference between victory and defeat. Challenger Eriksson started out heavy, stuffing down about a pound of meats and vegetables. The champ coasted with Ihree-quarters of a pound. In the second round Eriksson maintained his offensive but the champ met him in sharp infighting at the bread and beer counter. Eriksson kept the upper hand with a one-two combination of pig's knuckles. Round three was wild. The herring dishes disappeared, followed by the spareribs and reindeer steaks.

The champion saw the opening and moved in for the final kill, ordering a pastry with jam with his coffee. The challenger crumpled. The referee marked up another quarter ounce lor Cederhoek and declared him the winner But Eriksson refused to give in and was allowed an extra round. He lashed out with a stinging bottle of mineral water. The champ coolly came back with glass of ice water, downing it superbly, while glassy-eyed Eriksson managed only a small sip in his last stand. The referee gave champion Cederhoek the decision by a mere quarter of an ounce — the puffy pastry with jam. The final score: Cederhoek put away 8 pounds, 15 ounces; Eriksson 8 pounds 14% ounces.
