Benjamin Field Arena, Tampa, Florida, USALUD1010
"Teddy Yarosz..dished out a fancy fistic trimming to..Tommy Gomez." By some accounts Yarosz won every round, only to be the victim of a hometown decision of the worst sort. The audience protested the decision long after it was announced. (see The Ring, September 1941, page 54)

Olympic Auditorium, Los Angeles, California, USALPTS1010
referee: Benny Whitman
Thompson floored Yarosz in the first round and landed heavily in the next two rounds. After that, nearly all of his punches missed but Yarosz fought strictly on the defense.

Public Hall, Cleveland, Ohio, USAWPTS1010

Civic Auditorium, San Francisco, California, USALPTS1010

1939-04-20Archie Moore33-2-2
Municipal Auditorium, Saint Louis, Missouri, USAWPTS1010
referee: Walter Heisner | judge: Robert Dana | judge: Al Graf
Moore was dangerous all the way, and Yarosz was just smart enough to keep his chin in the clear." Moore was the aggressor, except for the last two rounds, when Teddy, feeling that Archie had spent his heaviest fire, took chances with Moore's Sunday punches. Yarosz was simply too clever for Moore at this stage of his career. However, Ray Arcel (Yarosz's trainer) said about Moore: "He'll be a great fighter in a year from now. All he needs is experience." Also, reported in the St.Louis Globe-Democrat (Jack Kincaid).

1938-04-26George Black34-14-2
Auditorium, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USAWPTS1010
Yarosz easily outpointed Black, but he spent most of the night countering and it wasn't exciting. Black missed most of his attempts to land. He was staggered by rights to the jaw in the eighth, Yarosz's best round.

1937-12-09Carmelo Candel43-16-7

According to Eddie Thomas, French correspondent for the British publication Boxing, Yarosz actually deserved the decision, although he did not make as good a showing as had been expected.
1937-09-30Billy Conn35-7-1
Duquesne Gardens, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USALSD1515
referee: Freddie Mastrean | judge: Karl Koern | judge: George Kutzbauer
Results from the Pittsburgh Press. Conn staged a dramatic rally in the last three rounds to win the decision. The decision was very unpopular; most of the spectators thought that Yarosz had the edge on rounds won, on which basis the fight was judged. The official verdicts were 8-6-1 and 8-7 for Conn and 9-4-2 (Mastrean) for Yarosz. Regis Welsh of the Pittsburgh Press scored it 8-5-2 for Yarosz.
