1929-11-25Tiger Joe Randall14-10-1
Motor Square Garden, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USALUD1010
referee: Al Grayber | judge: Frank Brown | judge: Jim McLaughlin
This was the only meeting of Zivic and Randall. The bout previously shown here for July 2, 1928 in Pittsburgh did not occur; indeed there was no program in the Pittsburgh area on that date. The 1941 RRB gives two bouts between Zivic and Randall, the other being July 2 1929 in Pittsburgh with the result the same.

The participants in this bout were later suspended for engaging in a prearranged fight. McConnell appears to have had no business in the ring with the far more experienced Zivic.
