Colored Welterweight Title
"One crushing counter to the head in the third round won the bout for Cocoa Kid. His swinging right landed flush on the Canadian's jaw and left Sonny in such straights that he became a backstop. Another right opened a cut over Sonny's left eye. Jones could hardly see but he stood up bravely until Referee Jack Sharkey of Boston halted the match." - Associated Press
