1930-09-29 : Len Harvey 156½ lbs beat Dave Shade 156½ lbs by PTS in round 15 of 15

  • Location: Royal Albert Hall, Kensington, London, United Kingdom
  • Referee: Charlie Thomas

"Dave Shade, former California middleweight, lost a 15 round decision tonight to Len Harvey, British champion in Albert Hall. There was some booing when the verdict was announced, some of the spectators evidently believing Shade was entitled to no worse than a draw. The California veteran forced the pace throughout, and his peculiar crouching style puzzled Harvey. The Englishman, however, gave a good exhibition of clean, hard fighting, especially in the later rounds. After the bout the referee said Harvey had piled up enough points in the last round to win by a very narrow margin." -Associated Press
