1937-06-07Joe Lipps28-29-14
Marigold Gardens Outdoor Arena, Chicago, Illinois, USAWKO410
Lipps was a substitute for Max Marek. Lipps made no pretence of fighting in the first round. He was knocked down twice in the second round and once in the fourth. The referee warned them to fight in the second round and Burman "then tried to made a battle of it, but Lipps held back and again was warned...Both Lipps and Burman, back in 1935, had been managed by Max Waxman and Jack Dempsey. There could well have been a little pre-arranged collusion.."

Burman was a protege of Jack Dempsey and Bath of Doc Kearns. The two had not spoken for 13 years prior to this bout. Dempsey danced across the ring and initiated the traditional greeting of "how are you doing Doc" to which Kearns replied "Alright, Jack". No more was apparently said. (Kansas City Times)
