1928-08-15Jock Malone76-18-7
American Giants Baseball Park, Chicago, Illinois, USANCNC810
referee: Jack Heinen
Both fighters were thrown out of the ring for not trying, but the IL commission ruled it was simply a matter of the match-up between two defensive stylists and counerpunchers. The Ring Record book incorrectly reports a September 14, 1928 5th-round kayo loss for Malone to Willard Norton in Eugene. The boxer was actually a Welterweight named Jack Malone, which is confirmed by the Portland Oregonian
