1928-07-18 [[Tod Morgan]] w pts 15 [[Eddie Martin]], Ebbets Field, Brooklyn, NYC, New York, USA - NY/CALIFORNIA/PENN. Referee: Eddie Forbes. Even more bitterly contested than their first set-too was, both Morgan (128) and Martin (128) again gave it their best shot after Morgan’s left eye was badly cut in the initial exchange. As before, it was the bull versus the matador and although Morgan’s straighter punches connected heavily many times he was unable to keep Martin, who finished badly cut on the right eye, at bay for long. It was said afterwards, that but for Martin, who lost unanimously, fighting ‘blind’ for the last seven rounds the title would have changed hands.
