Municipal Stadium, Cleveland, Ohio, USAWTKO1515
time: 2:46 | referee: George Blake
National Boxing Association World heavyweight title
World Heavyweight Title
1931 Fight of the Year - Ring Magazine .... Stribling was dropped for a count of 9 shortly before the referee stopped the contest. "The young Georgian said it was an injustice to him to have the fight stopped by Referee George Blake with only 14 seconds to go. He argued that he had been knocked down only once and might have continued to the finish. Stribling, however, was in no condition to weather the storm, for he was groggy and reeling, and another savage blow to the chin might have resulted seriously." — Associated Press.
