1933-06-23 [[Barney Ross]] w pts 10 [[Tony Canzoneri]], The Stadium, Chicago, Illinois, USA - WORLD. Referee: Tommy Gilmore. Scorecards: 52-48, 53-47, 50-50. Despite being outsmarted by Canzoneri (133½) over the first six rounds and despite carrying two cut eyes coming into the seventh, Ross (134¾) came through admirably to gain a majority decision in what for him was an uphill struggle. Having got off to a good start, the champion had peppered Ross with an array of lefts and rights in a seemingly never-ending display of aggression, but gradually the tide turned as the latter stuck to his guns to lash in two-fisted attacks, which ultimately cut back the deficit according to the judges.
