Ebbet's Field, Brooklyn, New York, USALSD1010
referee: Arthur Donovan
"The blond British giant had hardly had time to make a few preliminary gestures last night when he was in full retreat, doubled up and badly punished by a crushing succession of short pile driving rights to the body. The shaggy-haired, towering Argentine was on his foe like a tiger, delivering body blows that made shuffling Phil wince and become a distinct shade paler.... Scott;s margin was so close that it took a 2 to 1 decision to give him the victory. He received the vote of the two judges but Referee Arthur Donovan cast his ballot for Campolo." (Associated Press)
