1933-02-22 [[Young Corbett 111]] w pts 10 [[Jackie Fields]], Seals Stadium, San Francisco, California, USA - WORLD. Referee: Jack Kennedy. Called the conquerer of champions, Corbett (146) lived up to his name when outboxing and outpunching Fields (146) in six of the ten sessions to take the referee’s decision. Fighting in whirlwind fashion, the southpaw challenger took Fields completely by surprise as he fired in long lefts from the start and effectively countered anything coming his way. After losing the first five rounds Fields came to life in the sixth, belting Corbett to head and body at will before tiring and taking some heavy lefts in the seventh and eighth rounds, which stopped him in his tracks. The ninth and tenth sessions saw Fields battering Corbett around the ring in a desperate bid to hold on to his title, but with a minute to go he was badly hurt by lefts to the jaw and rights to the body before slumping on to his stool at the bell.
