The UPI report: "Fritzie Zivic, veteran former world champion welterweight, won a decision last night from Levi Southall, promising Negro fighter, in a 10-round bout." The "won" appears to indicate a decision win.

Uline Arena, Washington, District of Columbia, USALPTS1010
"A dull and listless fight..The aging Zivic fought in spurts and clinched a good deal. There were several good rounds, notably the sixth and eighth." (The Ring, May 1946, page 52.

referee: Sam Hennessey
Scoring: 6-3-1, 8-2, 8-2. Zivic was hurt in the 7th and 8th. LaMotta lost the 2nd and 4th rounds on low blows. Zivic damaged his left hand in the first round, but declined to use it as an excuse for his defeat. It was an exciting fight with lots of action. There were no knockdowns but both fighters were shaken up several times. LaMotta's best rounds were the 6th and the 10th.

As for that "low" blow, when Otto called it and took that eighth round away from Fritzie, it set off some extra fancy fireworks. The boos came down off the Garden's second "shelf" for more than five minutes. Reno Gazette
