1930-06-10 Frankie Genaro w pts 10 Frenchy Belanger, The Coliseum, Toronto, Canada - NBA/IBU. Referee: Lou Marsh. Despite Belanger (111½) making an aggressive start with relentless body punching, which put him in front at the half-way stage, Genaro (111) came back strongly over the last third, showing superb ringcraft, to win the unanimous decision. Surprisingly, in view of the verdict, Genaro’s victory was described in The Ring magazine as him having a close call in defence of his titles.
