1935-06-12 Freddie Miller w pts 15 Nel Tarleton, Stanley Racetrack, Liverpool, England - NBA/GB. Referee: Jack Smith. Having his second crack at Miller (125½), the classy Tarleton (126) looked like he would not be lasting the distance when put down in the opening round from a body punch, prior to taking a lot of punishment over the next four sessions. However, he surprised everyone by coming back strongly to win the middle rounds, only for the champion to come again and have his hand raised without hesitation by the referee at the final bell.
