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 putting him in front at the half-way stage, Genaro (111) came back strongly over the last third, showing superb ring-craft, 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.
