1931-03-25 [[Frankie Genaro]] drew 15 [[Victor Ferrand]], The Bullring, Madrid, Spain - NBA/IBU. Referee: Rene Schemann. At the finish, Ferrand (110½) was four points ahead on the scorecards, but under IBU rules the challenger had to have a lead of at least five points for the title to change hands and the decision was announced as being a draw. The fight itself saw Genaro (109½) outspeeded and outscored early on as he started cautiously, but by the eighth round he had hit his stride to recover some lost ground, but it was not nearly enough and Ferrand looked a good winner. Following the decision there was a noisy demonstration by many of the 35,000 fans in attendance and the referee had to be escorted away by the police after cushions, stones and even a large rock rained down on the ringside area.
