1934-03-27 Barney Ross w pts 10 Bobby Pacho, Olympic Auditorium, Los Angeles, California, USA - ILLINOIS/CALIFORNIA. Referee: George Blake. Scorecard: 5-2. Looking to take the title, Pacho (139½), in great shape, ultimately forced Ross (138½) to revert to clever defensive work in order for him to maintain the slim lead he had built up in the early stages. This was the pattern of the fight despite Pacho’s nose being broken as early as the first round. With Ross cut over the left eye early in the fourth, Pacho continued to bore in, flailing away with short chopping overarm rights right through to the final bell, before the referee decided that the title remained with the former.
