1933-09-12 Barney Ross w pts 15 Tony Canzoneri, Polo Grounds, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - WORLD. Referee: Arthur Donovan. Scorecards: 9-2, 8-4, 7-8. As in their previous encounter, this was again close. Reporting on the fight, Nat Fleischer of Ring Magazine felt that had Canzoneri (133¼) stuck to his boxing instead of going right-hand crazy it would probably brought him the decision, which again was a split one. However, the left hand of Ross (135) was superb, whether it was the jab or the hook and it stopped the challenger in his tracks and paved the way for victory in a fight that was always going to be closely contested. When Ross relinquished the title in April 1935, after being suspended for failing to defend against the number-one challenger, Lou Ambers, the New York State Athletic Commission immediately stepped in and matched Ambers, who had outpointed Sammy Fuller in a 15-round eliminator on 1 March 1935 at Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, with the former champion, Canzoneri.
