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.
