Opponent was listed as Sailor McCarthy. This was later determined to have been a fixed match. On July 14, 1925, after having been found guilty of participating in yet another "framed" boxing match, Fuente was sentenced to pay a $150 fine and serve 15 days in jail. His manager Al Lopez, promoter Charles Garcia, and Pop Nealis (Newman's manager) were likewise found guilty and given similar sentences. Nick Newman (i.e., "Sailor McCarthy") failed to appear.

W-KO
Fulton "took a dive" 35 seconds after the opening bell, it was later determined. The crowd rioted and threw "storms of cushions into the ring." (AP) It was later alleged Fulton had taken an extra $7, 500 to "lie down." His manager admitted to investigating boxing officials that Fulton had warned his friends to refrain from betting on him. Fulton was arrested for violating state law prohibiting prize-fighting; meanwhile authorities searched for Fuente, who dumped manager Winsor. Fulton later proclaimed he was done with boxing, because of this whole mess.
