Madison Square Garden, New York, New York, USALUD1515
judge: George LeCron | judge: Charles Draycott
NYSAC World middleweight title

World Middleweight title
Unified title. It was a sensational fight. Abrams was the outstanding challenger courtesy of three wins over former NY champ Billy Soose. Zale was knocked down in the 1st round for a "9" count. Judge George LeCron scored it 8-7 on rounds for Zale, and so far the other two votes have not been located. According to Jack Kincaid, all the newspaper reporters whose opinions he read thought that Zale won decisively, despite the knockdown, giving Abrams a bad beating to the body. Also, Abrams's eyesight was in danger after the fight.
