1915-08-02 (142lbs) [[Harry Stone]] nd-w pts 10 [[Johnny Marto]], Olympic AC, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA. Showing all of the skill that made him a leading welterweight title claimant, Stone (136) was far too good for Marto (138), who was reduced to rushing in with big swings that scarcely ever landed cleanly. Blocking, sidestepping and taking the blows on his arms and shoulders, the ''New York Herald'' reported that it was only when on the attack that Stone lacked effectiveness, producing very little power in his blows.
