Arena, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USALDQ810
referee: Tommy Reilly
Taylor disqualified for "not trying." Two days later he was "exonerated by the Pennsylvania Boxing Commission of the implication of stalling. He presented the commission with X-ray photogtaphs to show both his hands were injured during the early rounds of the bout." New York Times
1931-02-16Benny Bass101-14-3
Arena, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USALTKO210
referee: Leo Houck
Taylor fell to the canvas and claimed a foul. After Bass had been given the decision, Chairman Frank Weiner of the Pennsylvania Athletic Commission ordered the fighters to continue "as an exhibition to give the fans their money's worth." So they fought for another five rounds.

"The bout came as an anti-climax to two corking six-round battles in the double semi-windup. Taylor seemed more than willing to show his wares, but he found Edelman in a shell virtually all the scrap, and try as he would, Bud could not straighten Edelman up into position to do anything."

1929-12-27Earl Mastro34-3-1
Chicago Stadium, Chicago, Illinois, USALTKO910
A bout to determine the Middle Western challenger for Bat Battalino's featherweight crown. It ended when both fighters went through the ropes and sprawled on the floor outside the ring. "Taylor crowded Earl so fast both men were off balance when they hit the ropes.... Mastro scrambled to get back in the ring but Taylor's weight held him down and he did not regain his feet and the ring until the count of eight. Meanwhile Bud lay groaning in agony." (UP) Twenty seconds passed between the time the two hit the floor and when Mastro's hand was raised in victory. Taylor could not move for at least five minutes. Doctors determined he had pulled one of his back muscles, and that Mastro had broken one of the main bones of his right hand, which had swollen to twice its normal size.

Coliseum, Chicago, Illinois, USALTKO710
referee: Phil Collins
A low left hook sent Taylor down. Referee Collins said the blow was "on the border line." Taylor's seconds claimed a foul. After an examination by a physician and a consultation of the judges, Taylor was given five minutes rest. At the end of that time he still was unable or unwilling to continue, and the decision was given to Sangor. (AP) Attendance: 10,000. The next day Taylor was ordered by Illinois State Athletic Commissioner chairman Paul Prehn to appear before the commission's physician for examination as to Taylor's claims.
1928-01-24Phil Zwick21-5-0
Auditorium, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USAWKO210
A "fluke K.O." According to the Associated Press (AP): "A Taylor left spilled Zwick in the second round of a scheduled ten round fight. Zwick seemed unhurt and knelt in readiness to spring back to the attack at the count of 'nine.' While the referee was counting, Zwick glanced toward his corner for advice, and in so doing apparently lost track of the count. When 'ten' was pronounced he was still on his knee seemingly in no distress."

vacant National Boxing Association World bantamweight title
"The two lads furnished the most thrilling action Chicago fight fans have seen since the sport was legalized a year ago. Profiting by the lessons of their battle last March, Taylor rushed the little New Yorker almost constantly. Nearly every round offered a wild swinging melee in the center of the ring in which Canzoneri generally got the worst of it."(AP) Often incorrectly reported as occuring June 25. Taylor suffered a split bone over his left optic nerve, requiring surgery in early July.

The Seattle Boxing Commission had refused to allow Foley to fight, stating that he was "in no condition to box without danger of permanent internal injury.") Matchmaker: Biddy Bishop.
