1914-03-23 (170lbs) Bob Moha nd-w pts 10 Battling Levinsky, South Side AC, The Hippodrome, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA. With Levinsky beginning to make waves at weights between 165 and 175lbs and Jack Dillon, struggling to stay under 160lbs, the pair had already been brought together by an enterprising promoter to contest the vacant title the following month.

Prior to that, Moha had plans of his own and first and foremost that was to maintain his own claim at the weight. Tearing in with solid body shots throughout, Moha (170) almost put an end to Levinsky’s plans there and then. Although Levinsky (165), who won no more than two rounds at best, defended obdurately he was badly hurt at times and finished the contest badly cut up.

In the aftermath Moha stated that he was still keen on the middleweight title and to that end his next contest was at the same venue against Frank Mantell (nd-w pts 10 on 11 May) at 158lbs.
