Notes:

Rosenbloom was recognized by the NBA as World Champion; Slattery was recognized by the NYSAC. The verdict was “highly unpopular” with the 15,000 fans. The United Press score sheet gave Rosenbloom 8 rounds and Slattery 4, with 3 even. Referee Patsy Haley, after being almost knocked out by one of Rosenbloom’s wild swings, gave his decision to Slattery. He was overruled by two judges, both of whom voted for Rosenbloom.
