1930-02-22Jackie Fields53-3-1
Recreation Park, San Francisco, California, USAWPTS1010
referee: Jim Griffin
Corbett outpointed the champion in the early rounds with his "slashing, choppy" southpaw style. By the tenth Corbett was in a bad way, as he had grown weaker while Fields grew stronger, although Fields opened up too late to gain the decision. At the end of the bout Fields raised his own arm, but Referee Jim Griffin boosted Corbett's glove into the air, which "amazed" Fields. The verdict was popular with the crowd. (UP)
