Newspaper decision from Indianapolis News
Two days before this bout, Wiggins was badly beaten and jailed by local police -- after his vehicle had struck a police car and he then knocked down the officer who was attempting to arrest him. Wiggins was charged with drunkenness, driving under the influence, resisting arrest, assault & battery, failure to stop after an accident, and vagrancy.

Fairgrounds Auditorium, Jackson, Michigan, USAWPTS1010
This was decided by the decision of Referee Earl Croshaw. It was a slow and uninteresting fight and Wiggins incurred the fans's displeasure by not scoring a knockout. He won 6 of the rounds and had Anderson in trouble in the latter part of the fight.
