Sangor was actually knocked out twice, but the bell gave him time to pull himself together after he had been sprawled in the waning seconds of the second round. The bell rang when the count reached seven, and his seconds dragged him back to his corner, doused him with water and restored him to consciousness. It was a great fight with Sangor giving a tremendous effort even though knocked out. (Chicago Tribune, Bob Soderman).

World Junior Lightweight Title
Newspaper decision from the Milwaukee Journal had Morgan winner, but Los Angeles Times and Chicago Tribune and AP wire for Sangor. Under the Wisconsin Law, no decisions were allowed even though both fighters were under the division weight limit for the bout. Sangor needed a knockout or foul to gain the title. (AP) The Ring also had Sangor winning--this was not a wire report.

referee: Phil Collins
A low left hook sent Taylor down. Referee Collins said the blow was "on the border line." Taylor's seconds claimed a foul. After an examination by a physician and a consultation of the judges, Taylor was given five minutes rest. At the end of that time he still was unable or unwilling to continue, and the decision was given to Sangor. (AP) Attendance: 10,000. The next day Taylor was ordered by Illinois State Athletic Commissioner chairman Paul Prehn to appear before the commission's physician for examination as to Taylor's claims.

referee: Walter Houlehan
The Goozeman-Sangor fight was very controversial. Sangor went down, got up, went down without being hit. Referee Walter Houlihan should have disqualified Joey, but instead counted him out when he was on his feet. The chairman of the boxing commission ruled that the fight should continue "for the good of boxing." After a half-hour, Goozeman returned to the ring and the fight continued. The continuation of the fight was not an exhibition, as sometimes reported. In fact, the boxers fought hard. Considering the referee's error, it would seem best to treat this as a 10-round fight, Goozeman deserving the verdict according to the Milwaukee Journal.
