1930-02-03 Benny Bass nd-w rsc 4 (10) Davey Abad, The Coliseum, St Louis, Missouri, USA - NBA. Referee: Harry Ertle. Starting quickly, Bass (129½) put his challenger down twice in the first round, for counts of ‘nine’ and ‘five’, but missed frequently in the second as Abad (129) regained his composure. Toe-to-toe in the third with Bass edging it, Abad was put down six more times in the fourth and after staggering up from a terrific right to the jaw the referee came to his rescue.
