National Boxing Association World super lightweight title
Callahan, "by dint of a quantity of blows rather than quality, retained the in-between and semi-official junior welterweight title last night against the rugged rushes of Spug Myers.... The fight took place beneath a cold, star-splotched sky at the Cubs' baseball park. Only 10,000 over-coated fans were courageous enough to shiver through the card, thus upsetting Promotor Jim Mullen's expectation of a $60,000 gate. The intake was about $35,000." (AP)
