1932-01-25 Gorilla Jones w rsc 6 (10) Oddone Piazza, The Auditorium, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NBA. Referee: Julius Fidler. Contesting the vacant NBA version of the title, Jones (152½) won every round except the first as he wore Piazza (153¾) down with a mixture of strong attacks to the body and heavy jolts to the jaw. Come the sixth, Piazza, staggering away from a hail of punches, fell in a neutral corner for a count of ‘four’ and, on getting up, the referee came to his rescue when it was clear that he was at Jones’ mercy and on the verge of a serious beating.
