referee: Bernie Weismann
Satterfield was knocked down in the 1st, 3rd, and 8th. The bout was stopped after he rose unsteady after the last knockdown.
Four hours before the fight Satterfield was a 2 1/2-to-1 favorite to win, the odds shifted by fight time to make Holman and 8-to-5 favorite. Commissioner Lou Radzienda felt that the odds shift did not warrant an investigation though.
