Notes

"Jimmy Robertson avenged an earlier defeat by Ruben Navarro in their lightweight fight for the NABF title. But the boxing match was more of a tug and pull wrestling match with both fighters holding on to prevent knockdowns. Robertson recovered from an 8th round pounding to win the majority decision and the title. One judge scored the fight a 5-5 draw, another 6-5 and the referee 5-4." -Associated Press
