referee: Whitey Healy
National Boxing Association World middleweight title
NYSAC World middleweight title
Although Risko's middleweight title was at stake, this was a 10-rounder, not 15 as sometimes given. (Source: Newark Evening News, Herb Goldman) The Evening News report does not give the referee's card, so this may have been a newspaper decision. UPDATE: Referee Healy scored it 8-1-1 in rounds for the champion Babe Risko. LA Times

This was Fisher's second KO win in three weeks over Levine. Levine was floored three times in the seventh, the last time for the full count. It was a neighborhood rivalry affair, with fights breaking out spasmodically in the audience during the fight.
