1915-04-10Jack Simmons
Palomar Pavilion, Manila, Metro Manila, PhilippinesWTKO910
A few of Ross's stinging jabs on he nose sent simmons into a shell, to try to escape the punishment. Even so he took a whipping until his corner threw in the towel..He outweighed Ross by many pounds.

Palomar Pavilion, Manila, Metro Manila, PhilippinesWTKO1010
Blackburn was demoralized by Ross's lightning left jabs, but kept his feet until round 10. In the tenth, "Ross landed a stiff jab to Joe's face and followed it with a vicious right which sent the dusky doughboy rolling over the ropes." Joe got to his feet before the count was completed but the referee humanely stopped it."
