1935-03-17Arturo Godoy35-4-2
Nunoa Sports Ground, Santiago de Chile, ChileLPTS1010
"The decision..though narrow, was loudly acclaimed by the public, and has been accepted by the Chilean press." Godoy was the aggressor but never had Loughran in any danger of a knockout. It was not a thrilling battle because Loughran concentrated on defence. Afterward, Loughran expressed surprise at not receiving the decision, and said he won more easily than earlier, in the two Buenos Aires fights between the two men. The source of the clipping is not given, but the reporter gave Godoy rounds one, two, four, six, seven, and eight, the fifth was even, and Loughran took rounds three, nine, and ten. This fight was stated to be a 10-rounder, not twelve as shown here previously.

One judge voted for Carattoli while the other judge and the referee called it a draw. "The crowd jeered and hooted when the decision was announced" (Associated Press)

referee: Frank Floyd
A "slashing bout" with "scarcely a dull moment". Loughran was down in the 6th and 8th rounds but "staged a comeback in the 9th and 10th and was shooting punches from every angle at the final bell".

He gave the decision to Loughran 4 - 3, with three rounds even. (New York Times)
