1929-04-05  [[Tod Morgan]] w pts 10 [[Santiago Zorrilla]], Olympic Auditorium, Los Angeles, California, USA - CALIFORNIA/NY/PENNSYLVANIA. Referee: Jack Kennedy. Morgan (128), a good defensive fighter, kept Zorrilla (129) at distance with his longer reach, but other than that it was a disappointing contest with too much clinching. However, in the final round things warmed up a bit after the champion scored a flash knockdown. Getting up quickly, Zorrilla swarmed all over Morgan in a wild attack and nearly put him down following a hard right to the head. Apart from that, it had been Morgan’s fight and the referee’s decision was a formality.
