1931-01-26Tommy Loughran63-10-5
Arena, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USALPTS1010
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". One judge voted for each fighter and the referee then called it a draw. This decision was changed the following day by the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission when the referee found that he had miscounted his card. He gave the decision to Loughran 4 - 3, with three rounds even. (New York Times)
