There were three judges: one American, one French and one Swiss. The American and the Swiss judges concurred in disqualifying Pladner for a low left hook which floored Genaro for the count in the fifth, but the French judge refused to agree, declaring that Pladner had won every round. French fight fans were greatly upset. When Genaro and his seconds left the ring, they were attacked by spectators. Bottles were hurled, and Bill McCarney (Genaro's manager) was struck by a French boxer. A spectator kicked Genaro in the stomach. Pladner said he was through fighting as a flyweight, and would henceforth turn his attention to the bantams. (UP)

One of three bouts on the card, at the beginning of an elimination tournament, to determine a successor to World Flyweight Champion Fidel LaBarba.

vacant National Boxing Association World flyweight title
American Flyweight Title
Promoter: Dick Donald; Attendance: 25,000
The Flyweight World Title had been left vacant with the sudden death of Pancho Villa in July. This was the first title bout held in California since the state had legalized prize-fighting the previous November. LaBarba, just out of high school at this time, declared he would strenuously defend this title against all comers for one year before retiring to attend Stanford College. A year later, after winning the undisputed Flyweight World Title, he relinquished it to do just that: to attend Stanford College.
