On January 17, 1930 at the Coliseum in Chicago future world heavyweight champion Jimmy Braddock fought Leo Lomski on a show promoted by Jack Dempsey. Lomski won a ten round split decision over the future champion. Lomski knocked down in 2d and 5th; the judges split, and the referee called it a draw. Afterward Referee Miller said he had "erred" in his arithmetic on the original scorecard.
