Recognised by most of the authorities within reason, except the New York Boxing Commission who still supported [[Frank Mantell]], this was billed as a title fight at 160lbs. Klaus (159), starting as he meant to continue by attacking Papke’s body and invariably connecting with some heavy deliveries, was never headed. By the end of the 12th round, Papke (159) had taken considerable punishment and, having been in distress on several occasions, he began to fight wildly. Extremely riled he lost his head and in the 13th started to go low. After being warned several times, Papke took no notice and in the 15th he was disqualified.
