Gardiner met Gardiner in the finals of the heavyweight division of the University boxing tournament, and Tudor defeated Tom, to annex the "unlimited" title. This bout climaxed an evening of 17 matches, both final and semi-final, with fights in eight classes from the 121 pounders through to the heavies.
In the first unlimited bout of the evening, a semi-final match, Tudor Gardiner began his victories by defeating Robert H. "Putzy" Davis in a thrilling, drama-packed battle that had the spectators on their feet all the way. Both men were tense and tuned to a high pitch for the contest. "Putzy," although defeated, put up a terrific fight, keeping Gardiner on edge throughout the match. Gardiner was heard to remark after the fight that "'Putzy' sure packs a colossal wallop."
