1937-05-07 [[Lou Ambers]] w pts 15 [[Tony Canzoneri]], Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - WORLD. Referee: Arthur Donovan. Scorecards: 12-2, 13-2, 15-0. Another hard struggle for supremacy, in the third fight between the pair, saw Ambers (135) retain his title on all three scorecards despite not producing his best form. For Canzoneri (135), though, despite showing flashes of his former brilliance it was his last crack at the big time and he won 16 of 23 further contests before retiring just over two years later. Although the scorecards showed Ambers winning most of the rounds, his better boxing certainly catching the eye, it was never that simple and the decision was greeted by boos and whistling.
