Auditorium, Memphis, Tennessee, USALTKO18
time: 2:05 | referee: Billy Haack
Billy Haack did not make a count, and carried Foley to his corner where it took several minutes to revive him. "A left hook that sped straight and true to Foley's jaw was the punch that flattened the red-haired Arkansan-although it was really Tunney's right, an overhead crack to the jaw about a minute before, that was the punch that started Foley on his downfall." Foley down twice. SourceMemphis Commercial-Appeal

Coliseum, Grand Rapids, Michigan, USALNWS1010
Newspaper decision from the Pittsburgh Post. According to the Grand Rapids Herald, Tunney was extended to the limit in every round, "in the greatest fight between two big men that has ever been staged in a Grand Rapids ring." Tunney handed out a lot of punishment and tried hard to score a knockout, but "the champion did not by any means escape punishment. Foley, lashing out savagely with both hands time and again.." The writer scored it six rounds for Tunney, two for Foley, and two even.
