1935-10-22 [[Freddie Miller]] w pts 15 [[Vernon Cormier]], The Garden, Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NBA. Referee: Joe O’Connor. Boxing on the defensive for all but the 15th round, when he finally cut loose Miller (124½) looked a class above Cormier (125½) as he waltzed to the unanimous points decision in his favour. To be fair to the challenger he never stopped trying to get in a finishing blow and did manage to cut Miller on the left eye, but after taking a battering in the last session he was saved by the final bell.
