1930-07-15 Battling Battalino w co 5 (15) Ignacio Fernandez, Hurley’s Stadium, Hartford, Connecticut, USA - WORLD. Referee: Billy Conway. A disappointing affair saw Fernandez (126), who had never been decked previously, floored six times in round two by Battalino (125½) before somehow surviving through to the fifth when he was counted out at 2.50 of the session. According to newspaper reports the majority of the crowd thought it was a fake, especially with the challenger showing such poor form despite having gone the distance with Battalino in a non-title fight six months earlier.
