1930-07-17 [[Al Singer]] w co 1 (15) [[Sammy Mandell]], Yankee Stadium, Bronx, NYC, New York, USA - WORLD. Referee: Arthur Donovan. In one of the most sensational fights in the division’s history, Singer (133½) blasted the crown from the head of Mandell (134½) after just 106 seconds, having put him down four times before the full count was administered. It was no secret that Mandell had paid the price for making weight one time too many and it was summed up by Dr Walker, the NYSAC doctor, who said: “There goes a good champion who has dried himself out so thoroughly that there does not seem to be an ounce of water in his system”.
