1931-07-15 Kid Chocolate w rsc 7 (10) Benny Bass, Baker Bowl, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NBA/PENNSYLVANIA. 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. With the challenger in full cry, Bass was soon taking a beating. Seemingly unable to miss his opponent, when a deep cut appeared on Bass’ left eye, which then closed, the referee called hostilities off with just two seconds of the seventh round remaining.
