1936-11-09 John Henry Lewis w pts 15 Len Harvey, The Arena, Wembley, London, England - USA/GB. Referee: Jack Smith. For the whole 15 rounds the pair entertained the big crowd with their quality, although it was noticeable that the champion’s fists carried more authority, especially after the Englishman’s right hand went in the third. However, Harvey (172), carrying a damaged left eye, put on a tremendous display of ring craft to make things difficult for Lewis (173½) and in the last three rounds, fighting as if his life depended on it, he came with a rush in a desperate effort to swing the referee’s decision.
