1934-03-05 Barney Ross drew 10 Frankie Klick, Civic Auditorium, San Francisco, California, USA - ILLINOIS/CALIFORNIA. Referee: Toby Irwin. Although the referee gave a draw, Ross (137½) looked to have defended his title with some ease. While no one would dispute that Klick (138) contested it all the way, Ross, who started to fight viciously in the sixth and had all of the seventh and eighth with two-fisted attacks driving Klick back on his heels, appeared to have been robbed.
