Official scoring: 54-46 and 52-48 for Janiro and 50-50. Fusari was ahead after five rounds, but was hurt by a right hand to the jaw in round six and Janiro came on to take the lead. Fusari tried hard to pull the fight out of the fire in the 10th round and "as a result both lads stood toe to toe slugging it out." (The Ring, April 1950, page 58.

referee: Eddie Joseph
Jack who had recently had knee surgery, was unable to continue when he dislocated his kneecap. The 20 year old Janiro a 2 to 1 underdog gave the veteran a thorough trouncing before flooring him with a hard left hook to the head in the fourth. Beau had re-injured his kneecap when he was floored. This was the first time Jack was stopped in his brilliant pro career.
