"Last night's fight was not long enough for Murphy. He seemed to be improving as the fight progressed, but even at that was lagging considerably behind when the fight ended. Murphy, however, lived up to his promises.... He took the best that Lenhart had to offer, stopping dozens of blows which would have knocked other big fellows out." Tacoma News Tribune

1933-06-08Terris Hill6-9-3
Greenwich Coliseum, Tacoma, Washington, USAWPTS1010
Prior to this bout, prize-fighting (professional boxing) had been illegal in Washington state. State law had permitted "Sparring or fencing amongst members of private clubs for exercise only or for the enjoyment of their fraternal brothers." Thus, virtually all bouts in the state were usually held in the various American Legion posts, Eagles, Elks and other private athletic clubs for their "members." Anyone wishing to witness a match was required to obtain a membership card and levied an assessment for the seat. The boxers were paid "training expenses." Professional boxing was legalized in Washington state effective June 8, 1933. This bout between Lenhart and Hill is the very first prize-fight and 10-rounder conducted in Washington under the new law.
