Referee Forbes voted for Walker, "to the surprise of everybody who learned of this vote before they left the Garden. The referee's ballot, however, was not considered in the decision because of the unanimity of the two judges. Under the State Athletic Commission rules, when the judges agree their vote carries the decision.... Forbes said after the battle that he warned Rosenbloom repeatedly for holding, hitting on the break and striking with the open glove." New York Times

Forbes had scored it 9-4-2 for Walker, and the judges had it 11-3-1 and 9-6 for Rosenbloom.
