Civic Stadium, Seattle, Washington, USAWKO115
time: 1:43 | referee: Jack Dempsey
National Boxing Association World middleweight title
The crowd of 35,000 saw Steele knocked down four times. He was counted out at by Referee Dempsey, former World Champion. Some ringside observers accused Steele of coming out against Hostak with his hands down, thus getting KO'd in the first round. But Steele had been hampered by a cracked breastbone, which prevented him from lifting his gloves high to where they belonged--according to his chief sparring partner, Davey Ward.
