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), showing 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, with Mitchell’s height and reach being too much of a factor for Logan to handle only in one round, the ninth, did he 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.
