1921-12-15 Johnny Buff nd-l pts 10 Memphis Pal Moore, National AC, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - WORLD. Having to win inside the distance if he wanted to land the title, Moore (116½) had the best of the contest, his two-handed swings and uppercuts causing Buff (113½) many problems, but the champion was never at risk from the former title claimant who often slapped and lacked real power. Regardless of whether Buff was in any danger or not, he was made to appear limited as Moore, cut on the head in the seventh round, continued to make life difficult for him with his jumping and bobbing-about tactics right up to the final bell.
