1936-02-18 [[Freddie Miller]] w pts 12 [[Johnny Pena]], Crystal Pool, Seattle, Washington, USA - NBA. Referee: Tommy McCarthy. Outclassed, the brave Pena (123½), badly cut early on, took a beating round after round and was put down for a long count in the 11th before making it to the final bell. Earlier, in the fourth and eighth rounds, the referee had wanted to stop the fight but was overruled by the Washington Boxing Commissioners who felt that the challenger should continue. Although the unanimous points decision was in favour of Miller (124), the cheers were for Pena.
