1928-12-03 Tod Morgan drew 10 Santiago Zorrilla, State Armory, San Francisco, California, USA - CALIFORNIA/NY/PENN. Referee: Toby Irwin. Lacking the normal aggression expected of a champion, Morgan (130) failed to exert himself on Zorrilla (127¼), other than scoring a clean knockdown in the tenth round. Morgan also missed far too many times with right hands. Always dangerous, Zorrilla, landing heavily, came back strongly after being put down and fully deserved a share of the referee’s decision.
