8 September Abe Goldstein w pts 15 Tommy Ryan, Queensboro Stadium, Queens, NYC, New York, USA - WORLD. Referee: Patsy Haley. After five rounds of cautious boxing, Goldstein (116¾), despite being cut on the left eye in the second, got going to batter his way to a one-sided points win over the game Ryan (117), who went down to defeat on all three scorecards. With the challenger concentrating on the body, several times Goldstein had him on the verge of a kayo from right crosses, but was unable to find a finisher due to him being often wild in his application.

Goldstein’s next opponent would be Eddie Martin, who despite losing his first two pro contests had gone 62 unbeaten and listed victories over men like Charley Phil Rosenberg (twice), Wilbur Cohen, Midget Smith, Bobby Wolgast and Johnny Curtin.
