Official scoring: 54-46 and 52-48 for Janiro and 50-50. Fusari was ahead after five rounds, but was hurt by a right hand to the jaw in round six and Janiro came on to take the lead. Fusari tried hard to pull the fight out of the fire in the 10th round and "as a result both lads stood toe to toe slugging it out." (The Ring, April 1950, page 58.

 PTS  10/10  
referee: Sam Hennessey    judges: Joe LenahanFrank Fisher
Hennessey scored it 50-50 on points; Fisher favored Edgar 52-48; and Lenahan picked LaMotta 53-47. It was an intense battle held in 52 F weather. Nearly everyone at ringside thought that LaMotta had won and a scoring error was suspected, but a recount failed to locate a mistake. The Detroit News had LaMotta winning seven rounds to three. "It was the sort of fight that invites scoring differences. There were no knockdowns, no developments that could be cited as conclusive evidence that one man or the other was entitled to preference. It was simply a bruising brawl in the pattern of the two previous engagements between the same contestants."
