1928-01-13Joe Ralph5-7-4
Kaiserdamm Arena, Berlin, GermanyNCND88
Last fight of the program. Was first stopped after two minutes and the boxers were sent out of the ring. It was impossible to box on due to the riots which occurred after the Burman-Haymann-fight. After one hour or so Ralph and Drako were urged to show up a second time. Ralph won on points but - regarding the circumstances - the result was officially changed into ND (see BOXSPORT issue 383, p. 13).

As he rose the sixth time, a man leaped from his corner and charged Drako. The crowd began swarming upon the stage and into the ring, not , however before the police had worked their way through and surrounded Drako. Billings Gazette
