1933-07-26 [[Barney Ross]] w rsc 6 (12) [[Johnny Farr]], Convention Hall, Kansas City, Missouri, USA - ILLINOIS/MISSOURI. Referee: Walter Bates. Making the first defence of  his newly won crown, Ross (134¾) used Farr (136½) as a punchbag to win almost without reply. It was Ross all the way as he sent in punishing blows from the start, closing Farr’s right eye as early as the first round and thereafter hitting his man very much as he pleased. At the end of the sixth, it came as no surprise when the doctor ordered the referee to call a halt after his examination of Farr had disclosed a broken nose to go with severe facial injuries.
