Tuesday, September 12, 1933

Tomorrow our Gym class goes swimming. The other class went today. Tonight Fred and I fixed my puppet show.

September 12, 1933
Barney Ross vs Tony Canzoneri
Lightweight Title Rematch
Polo Grounds, New York, City

Scheduled for 15 rounds, the fight was a brutal, bloody, bout. It wasn't until the last few rounds,
when Ross had Canzoneri out on his feet, that Barney was able to develop a clear cut edge. After
winning the fight, Ross indicated that he was glad he had not knocked out the gallant Canzoneri.
