1933-08-09 [[Lou Brouillard]] w co 7 (15) [[Ben Jeby]], Polo Grounds, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - NY. Referee: Pete Hartley. For six rounds the southpaw challenger chopped away at Jeby, stabbing out openings with his right before unleashing left-hand smashes to the body. At the end of the sixth, Jeby (159) was gasping after taking a series of such blows to the body and when he came out for the seventh Brouillard (158½) jumped on him. There was no respite and Jeby was battered around the ring before being caught full on the chin by a sweeping left and crashing over. With the count underway and Brouillard warned to keep his distance, Jeby managed to get to knees before slumping back to the floor and being counted out on the 2.21 mark.
