- Clark allegedly entered the ring wearing a football cup instead of a boxing foul protector. Carson hit him slightly below the belt line and because Clark wasn't wearing a proper cup he developed a swelling or a whelp on his groin. The commission at the time ruled it the same as if it was an accidental headbutt and called the fight a no contest. The rules state, however, that if a fighter is hit with an accidental low blow he has five minutes to recover and if he can not continue, the victory is awarded to the opponent. After review, the no contest ruling was overturned, Jones was given the TKO victory and awarded the USBA Welterweight Title.
