1924-07-24Gene Tunney53-1-1
Polo Grounds, New York, New York, USALTKO1515
time: 0:14
Attendance: 30,000. Tunney had the better of the fight until the tenth when he gave Carpentier a frightful beating, knocking him down three times. Georges fought back heroically, but near the end of the 14th round he went down and the count was at six when the bell rang. Carpentier came out for the 15th but the referee soon stopped it because the Frenchman was in no condition to continue. There was some question that Tunney landed a low blow to floor Carpentier in the 14th, but it was reported that privately-taken films showed no indication of a foul.
1924-05-31Tommy Gibbons51-3-1
Floyd Fitzsimmons' Arena, Michigan City, Indiana, USALNWS1010
Popular verdict - a win for Gibbons (World Almanac). From the Chicago Tribune (Bob Soderman): Gibbons's win was decisive. Both the Tribune and the New York Times credited Tommy with winning every round. Carpenter was very brave to withstand the beating he received. He only landed his vaunted right full on Gibbons's jaw once, in the fourth round. This punch definitely stunned Gibbons but Carpentier failed to follow up on his temporary advantage. Carpentier twisted an ankle in round nine. In the tenth a Gibbons punch opened a cut over Carpentier's right eye, and "he was now a sorry sight indeed." If Gibbons had been more forceful, he probably would have stopped his opponent in the 9th or 10th rounds, but like his brother Mike he was cautious when he had a fight well in hand, and took no unnecessary chances.

Papke defended his claim as World Middleweight champion. Carpentier suffered a deep cut over his right eye in the 17th round and "blood positively rushed down the lad's face..(Carpentier's manager,) Descamps prevailed upon his plucky colt to forebear. Thus it was that, although the gong rang out for the 18th rd., it was but the signal for Carpentier to acknowledge defeat." (Boxing, November 2, 1912, page 17)
