1936-10-05 : Tony Canzoneri 137 lbs lost to Jimmy McLarnin 145 lbs by UD in round 10 of 10

  • Location: Madison Square Garden, New York, New York, USA
  • Referee: Billy Cavanaugh
  • By the last round Canzoneri's eyes were bloody and his nose was cut. The split lip he earlier sustained while training and sparring--resulting in postponing this bout--was "pulled and crimson." The crowd of 11,423 was so sickened by the sight that they yelled for the referee stop it. But, as Canzoneri had never been knocked out in his career, Cavanaugh allowed him to go the distance.
