1928-06-01 Tommy Loughran w pts 15 Pete Latzo, Ebbets Field, Brooklyn, NYC, New York, USA - WORLD. Referee: Jed Gahan. In front of a 20,000 crowd, the champion’s mastery and ring wizardry were too much for Latzo (168), who despite making himself a difficult target as he found a way of sliding under the left lead to score with short-arm blows and roundhouse swings, lacked the ability to make it pay. Although Latzo had a good tenth round, class ultimately told and Loughran (173¾) sailed home to receive the unanimous decision.
