Madison Square Garden, New York, New York, USALPTS1010
"Young Terry, a virtually unknown fighter from Trenton, N.J., loomed today as a worthy contender for the world's middleweight championship left vacant by the retirement of Mickey Walker.... The slugging Jerseyite opened the bout with a rush and piled up a big early lead, earning a clear advantage in the five rounds, and successfully halted Fields' rally in the closing rounds." (UP) Often incorrectly recorded as having occurred Sept. 19.
1931-02-26Jackie Brady50-29-9
Arena, Syracuse, New York, USAWUD1010
Fields, a "master craftsman" of the ring, gave Brady a bad licking. Brady's face was cut to shreds, but he was not knocked off his feet. (From the Syracuse Post-Standard, Herb Goldman)

1930-02-22Young Corbett III82-8-21
Recreation Park, San Francisco, California, USALPTS1010
referee: Jim Griffin
Corbett outpointed the champion in the early rounds with his "slashing, choppy" southpaw style. By the tenth Corbett was in a bad way, as he had grown weaker while Fields grew stronger, although Fields opened up too late to gain the decision. At the end of the bout Fields raised his own arm, but Referee Jim Griffin boosted Corbett's glove into the air, which "amazed" Fields. The verdict was popular with the crowd. (UP)

Kansas City, Missouri, USAWKO210
referee: Jack Dempsey
"The mute boxer carried the fight to his opponent most of the initial round, landing many blows on the head and body of the champion. In the following round Fields pummeled Mahan's body with a steady attack of rights and lefts, and sent the Californian down for the count with a short left uppercut." (AP)

Wrigley Field, Los Angeles, California, USAWPTS1010
This was one of only two bouts of the fight card that actually materialized. Fighters for other bouts failed or refused to appear, including Joe Dundee for a title bout with Ace Hudkins due to his manager's claim that they did not receive $60,000 promised them "unofficially" by promoter Dick Donald. The crowd of 17,000 disgruntled fans smashed ringside seats and were quelled only after a riot call brought additional police with their night sticks to the scene. The only other bout this evening was Vince Dundee vs. Eddie Mahoney. (Sometimes incorrectly reported as having occurred in San Francisco.)
