1935-04-09 [[Barney Ross]] w pts 12 [[Henry Woods]], Civic Auditorium, Seattle, Washington, USA - ILLINOIS/WASHINGTON. Referee: Tommy McCarthy. Hammered to the floor by a one-two to the jaw in the third round it appeared that Woods (137¼) had twisted his ankle, but after reaching the count of ‘ten’ the referee barked for the challenger to get to his feet instead of counting him out. Ross (136½) then tried for a kayo before Woods fought a rearguard action to somehow stay in the fight. Following that, Ross started each session slowly, only speeding up when caught, and finished with a burst of action to impress the judges, who handed him the unanimous decision. Ross relinquished the Illinois version of the title after regaining the world welterweight crown in June and the weight class went into hibernation until Maxie Berger resurrected it in Montreal, Canada some four years later.
