1932-04-10 Kid Chocolate w pts 15 Davey Abad, Polar Stadium, Havana, Cuba - NBA. Referee: Fernando Rios. With the intention of survival in mind, Abad (129¾) boxed virtually the whole 15 rounds on the back foot, looking to make Chocolate (128½) miss, while the latter realising he didn’t have to take any risks was content to score the points to land a shutout on the judges’ scorecards. The Ring magazine reported both men to be in good condition and breathing normally at the end of what was little more than a heavy sparring session.
