1931-07-15 Kid Chocolate w rsc 7 (10) Benny Bass, Baker Bowl, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - PENN/NBA. Referee: Leo Houck. With the Pennsylvanian Boxing Commission supporting this contest as a world title bout, Bass (128½) suffered his first ever stoppage defeat against the much taller Chocolate (125½), who took advantage of the differential to fire in long lefts and rights to the head, while the former concentrated on the body. Soon Bass was getting a beating, the challenger seemingly unable to miss his opponent, and when a deep cut appeared on Bass’ left eye and the eye closed the referee called hostilities off with just two seconds of the seventh round remaining.
