1922-07-06 Johnny Dundee w pts 15 Jackie Sharkey, Ebbets Field, Brooklyn, NYC, New York, USA - NY/NBA. Referee: William McPartland. Taking every one of the 15 rounds contested on the judges’ cards, Dundee (129) was tireless as he hammered away with two-fisted assaults to head and body, dropping Sharkey (127) with left hooks to the head in both rounds four and five. Cut over the left eye in the seventh, outboxed throughout but never giving up, the challenger finished exhausted and would surely have never lasted the course had Dundee carried more power in his fists.
