From the New Haven Evening Register (Bob Yalen): "Gainer displayed a swollen left thumb after the fight and this probably explains his lack of effectiveness with his most potent weapon, the left hook."

1934-06-16Heinz Lazek14-0-5
Engelmann Arena, Vienna, AustriaLDQ610
According to notes by Leo Vollnhofer (long-time Austrian correspondent for THE RING), obtained by examination of SPORT-TAGBLATT (Vienna), Andersson landed a low blow and was disqualified.Vollnhofer's notes make no mention of the verdict being changed, and he read through SPORT-TAGBLATT thoroughly. This is clearly an authoratitive source and should be honored until and unless genuine evidence shows it to be incorrect. Christer Franzen's book was written many years later and his sources are not mentioned in the note, below. Therefore the result is changed back to a win by Lazek.
According to Ringside by Christer Franzé® the result was changed to NC 6!
