Bison Stadium, Buffalo, New York, USALSD1515
referee: Patsy Haley | judge: George Kelly | judge: George Patrick
NYSAC World light heavyweight title
Undisputed World Light Heavyweight Title
The title had been vacated by Tommy Loughran when he entered the heavyweight ranks.
Rosenbloom was recognized by the NBA as World Champion; Slattery was recognized by the NYSAC. The verdict was "highly unpopular" with the 15,000 fans. The United Press score sheet gave Rosenbloom 8 rounds and Slattery 4, with 3 even. Referee Patsy Haley, after being almost knocked out by one of Rosenbloom's wild swings, gave his decision to Slattery. He was overruled by two judges, both of whom voted for Rosenbloom.

1930-05-27Pete Latzo57-13-3
Boston Garden, Boston, Massachusetts, USANCNC710
referee: Johnny Brassil
"After being jeered for seven rounds [both] were thrown out of the ring" by Brasill, who "ordered the purses withheld." (Slattery reportedly is recognized "in New York state as light-heavyweight champion.") Seattle Daily Times According to sportswriter Jack Egan of the Boston Globe, the crowd got onto the boxers from the first, but they did not deserve this treatment. Latzo was furious at being cheated out of his purse. He said "I've been 11 years in this business and I never crooked one yet." Slattery won the first 4 rounds with long range boxing. The shorter Latzo swarmed inside and won the next 3. Slattery and Latzo both retained lawyers to get their pay but the results of their effort is not known. It looked like a put-up job to save the Crosscup-Pichon American Legion Post (who put on the program) the expense of paying the main event fighters.
