1936-07-11 Freddie Steele w pts 15 Babe Risko, Civic Stadium, Seattle, Washington, USA - NY/NBA. Referee: Tommy McCarthy. Scorecards: 93-72, 92-73, 91½-71½. Starting as he meant to carry on Steele (158¾) floored Risko (158) for ‘seven’ in the opening round, and continued aggressively before flooring the champion again in the ninth. Although Risko took plenty of punishment, gamely sticking to his task, he was gradually getting back into the fight over the last four sessions.
