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, this being the third fight between the pair, saw Ambers (135) retain his title on all three scorecards regardless of 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 before retiring just over two years later. Although the scorecards showed Ambers winning most of the rounds, his better boxing certainly catching the eye, the decision was still greeted by boos and whistling.
