1931-11-20 : Tony Canzoneri 132 lbs beat Kid Chocolate 127½ lbs by SD in round 15 of 15

World Lightweight Title & World Jr. Welterweight Title

"[O]ne of the noisiest and most disorderly demonstrations the arena ever has witnessed after one of the greatest lightweight championship battles in local ring annals." New York Times

Had Canzoneri, former World Featherweight Champion, made 130 lbs for this bout, he would have been awarded Kid Chocolate's Jr. Lightweight title, and would have become the first four-division champion in history.
