1932-01-18 [[Johnny Jadick]] w pts 10 [[Tony Canzoneri]], The Arena, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - PENN/NBA. Referee: Leo Houck. Scorecards: 5-4, 5-4, 4-3. As in the case of California, the Pennsylvanian Boxing Commission were not affiliated to the NBA but were happy to recognise Canzoneri v Jadick for the title. Down in the first, Jadick (136½), obviously cautious, came back with the jab and, although occasionally opening up, relied on that punch to win him the fight. The champion, Canzoneri (132½), was the heavier puncher but was unable to sustain a steady work rate and, despite flailing away wildly with both hands, didn’t land enough quality punches to retain the title, Jadick fully deserving the unanimous verdict. In another so-called ‘title defence’, Jack Kid Berg drew over ten rounds with Sammy Fuller, 136½, on 1 April 1932 at Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, NYC, New York, before finally losing The Ring magazine’s championship recognition on 20 May 1932 after being outpointed over 12 rounds by Fuller (138lbs) at the same venue.
