1913-11-04 (118lbs) Eddie Campi w pts 20 Benny Chavez, Vernon Arena, Los Angeles, California, USA. Referee: George Blake. Made at 118lbs and a defence of Campi’s title claim at the weight, it was his battle in all but three rounds with Chavez badly punished. While Campi threw many punches and threatened at times to finish Chavez off he was unable to do so, and the game little Mexican came back swinging in the last couple to have the crowd cheering him on.
