1931-05-22 Battling Battalino w pts 15 Fidel LaBarba, Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - WORLD. Referee: Kid McPartland. Right from the opening bell Battalino (126) pressured and hurt his challenger, hammering in blows from both hands to take the first four rounds. He then proceeded to outbox as well as outfight LaBarba (125½), who tried to keep him at bay with left jabs and hooks and was generally too busy keeping his defences in place to be a threat. Although LaBarba put a few rounds in the bag later on, he was well down on the judges’ scorecards and lost unanimously.
