1941-02-21 Little Dado w pts 10 Jackie Jurich, Civic Auditorium, Honolulu, Hawaii - NBA. In what was billed as the Islands’ first title fight, Dado (111½) maintained a terrific pace from start to finish, putting Jurich (110¼) down six times in all, and at the final bell was well worthy of the unanimous decision.

Inactive for almost all of 1942, Dado came back towards the end of that year as a fully-fledged bantam, but reigned on as champion until 14 October 1943, the day the NBA formally decided he could no longer make the weight.
