1931-07-23 [[Battling Battalino]] w pts 10 [[Freddie Miller]], Redland Field, Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - WORLD. Referee: Lou Bauman. Tearing out at the opening bell, Battalino (125½) significantly hurt Miller (124) with his first punch and the latter got on his bike from then on. Not content with just winning the unanimous points decision, the champion put Miller down in the eighth with a brutal right to the solar plexus, and although the local boy fought back with vigour another right to the body sent him down for ‘four’ immediately prior to the final bell.
