Galvani down for a count of nine in the sixth round. Milt Baron, in The Ring, June 1947, page 64, stated that Galvani "won at least seven out of ten rounds." Galvani and Castillo did not fight in 1948, as given in The Ring Record Book, and previously here.

"Galvani..received the verdict..The judges' decision was so illogical that two days after the bout took place, the Cuban Boxing Commission ruled out the verdict and announced the bout a draw." (The Ring, May 1947, page 63) Thus the CBC overruled the judges that it had appointed and replaced their decision with an arbitrary decision of their own.
