1928-07-20 Izzy Schwartz w disq 4 (12) Frisco Grande, Playland Stadium, Rockaway, Queens, NYC, New York, USA - NY. Referee: Danny Ridge. Schwartz (110¼) was well on top of his challenger throughout, his left hand and aggression being just too much for Grande (111) to cope with. There seemed to be no way out for Grande, and in trying to escape by going to the body he was warned in the first round for striking low, Schwartz being given a temporary rest. Then, after being twice admonished in the fourth for low blows, when Grande repeated the dose he was disqualified on the 2.59 mark.
