1933-12-05 Rodolfo Casanova w pts 10 Speedy Dado, Olympic Auditorium, Los Angeles, California, USA - CALIFORNIA. Referee: George Blake. Contested for the Californian version of the title, Casanova (118), a southpaw, took the referee’s decision when finishing strongly to win the last four rounds handily, poking away with the jab as he pleased. Although well beaten, Dado (117¾), who took the first, second, fifth and sixth rounds on the referee’s scorecard, was generally outpunched despite being a danger at all times.

After dropping his Californian world title to Casanova, Dado was beaten in his next four contests, against Lew Farber, Merv Darky Blandon (twice) and Mickey Miller, before getting back on track with a win over Bobby Olivas.
