  • Scoring: 8-1-1, 8-1-1, 7-3

"Heavyweight contender Eddie Machen, who wilted Alex Miteff at his own body-punching game, planned three more matches today as stepping stones toward a title fight. In their rough fight, Machen wore down Miteff and gave him such a terrific battering in the last three rounds that Alex - with blood dribbling from his mouth - was groggy and on the verge of a kayo at times." -United Press International
