1932-08-16 : Stanley Poreda 201½ lbs beat Primo Carnera 264 lbs by PTS in round 10 of 10

  • Location: Dreamland Park, Newark, New Jersey, USA
  • Referee: Joe Mangold

Poreda spotted Carnera over 62 pounds. Commissioner George E. Keenen, who was ringside, suspended Referee Joe Mangold indefinitely for what was termed an "unpardonable decision." Carnera was warned in four rounds for roughness and back-handed blows, pulling and elbowing and drew the boos of the 15,000 spectators. "The decision given by Mangold was the worst I have ever seen," said Keenen. He can't possibly have any excuse for his action, and I have decided to suspend him and keep him suspended until he learns how to judge a fight."
