Fairness in boxing

1920-03-09 The Cincinnati Enquirer (Cincinnati, OH) (page 7)

Buenos Aires, March 7.--The unusual claims of a boxer declared the winner of the bout, protesting against the decision in his favor, was witnessed last night at the close of the ten-round session between Young Cohen, of Boston, billed as featherweight champion of the American-Asiatic fleet, and Julio Perez, featherweight champion of Argentina. The referee at first gave the decision to Young Cohen, but upon the latter's protest that he was not entitled to a victory, the official declared that the bout was a draw amid cheers from the Argentinian audience.
