1923-01-30 [[Pinky Mitchell]] nd-w pts 10 [[Bud Logan]], The Auditorium, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - WISCONSIN. For his first defence, Mitchell (139¾) took on the unsophisticated Logan (137¼) and showed his worth when pumping the left into the latter’s face with much regularity, while also getting accurate rights off without response. Nearly six foot tall, Mitchell’s height and reach was too much of a factor for Logan to handle and only in one round, the ninth, did the latter bother the champion, a right to the head landing heavily. Being a no-decision contest due to fights to a decision being illegal in Wisconsin at the time, the general consensus among the press was that Mitchell had won every round against the floundering, wild-swinging Logan.
