1930-02-06 : Jackie Johnston lost to Joe Villeneuve by PTS in round 10 of 10

  • Location:
  • Canadian Bantamweight Title (1st defense of Villeneuve)


  • Villeneuve had previously been named Canadian champion in October 1928 without winning the title in the ring. The champion at the time was Jackie Johnston, but he had put on so much weight since winning the title that the board of the Canadian Boxing Federation did not think he could compete at Bantamweight any longer. Instead of declaring the title vacant, Villeneuve, the #1 contender at the time, was simply installed as the new champion.
