1934-02-07 Barney Ross w pts 12 Pete Nebo, Convention Hall, Kansas City, Missouri, USA - ILLINOIS/MISSOURI. The champion showered Nebo (139) with leather throughout, winning ten of the 12 contested rounds and fully deserving the unanimous decision. Not undaunted, Nebo bothered Ross (135½) constantly with left hands and many of the rounds were closely fought as he tried to force his way in using a crouching, weaving style. Winning the fourth and 11th sessions with forceful attacks while getting in smashing head blows were not enough, but Nebo was still fighting hard at the final bell and received warm applause for his great efforts.
