Bob Cleroux 205 lbs lost to Zora Folley 193 lbs by UD in round 10 of 10

"There was no fluke about Folley's victory last night. He used his left jab and right cross to counter the Canadian's rushing tactics and win going away. Cleroux had his best round in the 2nd when a series of body blows had Folley on the run. It earned him an even break in the round. It was the closest he came to heading off Folley's determined attack." -Oakland Tribune

  • Unofficial Tribune scorecard - 10-0 Folley
  • Unofficial AP scorecard - 9-2 Folley

  • "When I found out how strong he was I didn't try to mix with him inside. His hanging on kept me off balance and I couldn't get a good shot at him." -Zora Folley
