1934-09-20 Freddie Miller w pts 15 Nel Tarleton, Anfield Stadium, Liverpool, England - NBA/GB. Referee: C. H. Douglas. Even though Tarleton (126) put up good resistance, his boxing being a delight to watch, Miller (125½) was always one step ahead, especially when coming in under the defence to fire off southpaw blows to head and body. The referee’s verdict in Miller's favour did not come as a surprise. Smashed to the floor in round four it had looked all over for the challenger, but he came back well despite having great difficulty locating Miller’s right leads and being unable to get his own punches off effectively. Having been warned for a low blow in the 12th Tarleton was put under severe pressure for the remaining rounds, finishing the fight with his right eye completely closed.
