referee: Barney Ross 75-75
National Boxing Association World featherweight title
Originally announced as a split decision win for Scalzo, but the outcome was later changed to a draw by the Wisconsin Boxing Commission
"Commissioner Fred Saddy said the ruling was the result of a hearing yesterday on charges that referee Barney Ross had scored the fight 75 points for each contestant and later changed his score card giving Scalzo 76 points and Zwick 74 points. A statement issued over Saddy's signature said 'The commission has a rule which prohibits alterations on a score card at any time and the decision of the referee was not consistent with the 75-75 markings on his score card. Therefore, the decision of the referee must be made consistent with his card and the bout be called a draw'." (Sheboygan Press)
