1930-05-27Jimmy Slattery104-8-0
Boston Garden, Boston, Massachusetts, USANCNC710
referee: Johnny Brassil
"After being jeered for seven rounds [both] were thrown out of the ring" by Brasill, who "ordered the purses withheld." (Slattery reportedly is recognized "in New York state as light-heavyweight champion.") Seattle Daily Times According to sportswriter Jack Egan of the Boston Globe, the crowd got onto the boxers from the first, but they did not deserve this treatment. Latzo was furious at being cheated out of his purse. He said "I've been 11 years in this business and I never crooked one yet." Slattery won the first 4 rounds with long range boxing. The shorter Latzo swarmed inside and won the next 3. Slattery and Latzo both retained lawyers to get their pay but the results of their effort is not known. It looked like a put-up job to save the Crosscup-Pichon American Legion Post (who put on the program) the expense of paying the main event fighters.

Lomski "earned his margin through some terrific punching in the early rounds but was hard pressed to maintain the advantage. Latzo apparently solved the problem of the Westerner in the closing rounds and was rapidly cutting down the lead when the final bell rang" (New York Times)

referee: Al Thomas
Hull floored Latzo in the 7th round and won the "newspaper decision." He "startled the fistic world by decisively beating" Latzo. At the end of the bout, "Latzo was bloody and shaky, with Clyde unmarked... It took four stitches to close Latzo's split lip." New York Times & AP reports.

Around this time Latzo injured his right hand while fixing a window pane at his home. Blood poisoning set in, and in time his right arm became partly paralyzed; so much so, that it was rumored he would abandon the ring. It took awhile, but he eventually returned to boxing.

1926-05-20Mickey Walker39-7-0
Watres Armory, Scranton, Pennsylvania, USAWUD1010
referee: Frank Floyd | judge: Mike Bernstein | judge: John Kofoed
World Welterweight Title
"Latzo won decisively simple because he ws a better boxer than Walker. He stood up under the terific body punishment the champion inflicted and despite this attack was able to come back with a counter-offensive tht invariably swept Walker before it and not infrequently had the defending champion stung and staggering." Both judges awarded the fight to Latzo while the referee, who was therefore not required under Pennsylvania law, called it a draw. (James P. Dawson, New York Times) Both judges voted for Latzo and Referee did not vote.
