1935-03-08 : Joe Louis 200 lbs beat Don 'Red' Barry 192 lbs by TKO in round 3 of 10

  • Location: Dreamland Auditorium, San Francisco, California, USA
  • Referee: Toby Irwin

The San Francisco Chronicle reported that Louis knocked Barry down twice in the second round and twice more in the third.

In his book Joe Louis: The Great Black Hope, Richard Bak wrote: "Barry went beyond the first round only because of Joe's empathy for a local sportswriter, Harry Smith, who had predicted a third-round knockout. Joe liked Smith, so he carried Barry."
