1930-12-12 Battling Battalino w pts 15 Kid Chocolate, Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - WORLD. Referee: Arthur Donovan. Boxing brilliantly after sending the champion to the floor in the first round, Chocolate (125) seemed well on his way to the title, his blinding fists doing much damage to Battalino’s features as he appeared to land the more correct punches. However, Battalino (124½), who never took a backward step while fighting both aggressively and resolutely throughout, was adjudged the winner on all three judges’ cards in what appeared to be a travesty of justice to erudite ringsiders. Nat Fleischer of The Ring magazine made the valid point that in New York fights were obviously being scored on aggression first and correctly delivered blows second.
