"Max Baer of California established himself as a leading contender for heavyweight honors in pounding out a 20 round decision over King Levinsky of Chicago, in a furiously fought battle featuring Reno's annual Independence Day celebration today. A vicious and almost ceaseless attack to the body brought Baer a popular decision. Levinsky stood up under a beating that would have dropped many another opponent. The Kingfish started out with a rush to take the play away from his opponent for two rounds. A right to Baer's jaw led Levinsky supporters to shout for an early victory. But Baer found the range in the 3rd frame and from then on had things his own way save for Levinsky rallies in the middle rounds." -Associated Press
