"Pirrone, floored nine times in the first five rounds, stayed in his corner for nine seconds as the sixth round opened, while Jeby rushed over, swinging at him and asking for action. When Pirrone finally stood up, Jeby's seconds called the New York fighter to retire. Pirrone then advanced to the centre, but Jeby refused to go on, contending the fight was over."
