1943-05-02 David Kui Kong Young w co 8 (12) Dado Marino, The Stadium, Honolulu, Hawaii - TBC. Referee: Walter Cho. An Hawaiian championship bout that was also recognised by the Territorial Boxing Commission as involving the world title saw Young (116¾) defend his honours against the inexperienced Marino (116), who was being gradually ground down going into the eighth round. Marino had depended totally on speed to get him through, but once Young started to get to him with heavy left crosses in the eighth the end was in sight, and following two knockdowns a third saw him counted out face down on the canvas.
