This fight was previously listed as occurring in Wilmington, Delaware on November 6, 1928. This is incorrect because boxing in Delaware was banned in October because of the lack of a state law. (Refer to The Ring, December 1928, page 25.) The likeliest site for this fight would be southern New Jersey or Pennsylvania.
