1957-03-27Willie Vaughn34-14-8
Kansas City, Missouri, USALPTS1010
"Willie Vaughn scored an upset split decision over Joey Giardello, 10, but referee's card was incorrectly marked and verdict was officially changed to a draw." (The Ring, June 1957, page 17. However, the violation would have simply changed a 6-4 card for Vaughn to 5-4, so that he would have won anyway! Perhaps it would be logical to show Vaughn as the winner, rather than punishing him for the referee's mistake.
