1924-08-29 : Quintin Romero Rojas 195 lbs beat Jack Sharkey 188 lbs by KO in round 9 of 10

  • Location: Mechanics Building, Boston, Massachusetts, USA
  • Referee: Johnny Brassil

"Quinton Romero Rojas, Chilean heavyweight, turned a battle that was going against him into victory tonight by knocking out Jack Sharkey of Boston, until a few months ago the heavyweight pride of the United States Navy. The blow that sent Sharkey down was a swinging right hook to the jaw in the closing seconds of the 8th round. The bell rung with Sharkey sprawled upon the floor. He came up for the 9th round, but fell across the ring in a futile attempt to stand up." -The Charleston Gazette
