On January 16, 1931 at Madison Square Garden in New York heavyweights Max Baer and Tom Heeney battled in the main event. The future heavyweight champion Baer prevailed knocking Heeney out in the 3rd round. Referee Jack Dempsey picked up the count incorrectly. Knockdown time-keeper Arthur Donovan signaled Heeney out at Dempsey's count of eight. Heeney was waiting to hear "nine" before arising. When he learned he had been counted out, he "protested strenuously," and the crowd "broke into a deafening roar of disapproval." (New York Times).
