This fight was incorrectly dated as occurring on 11/25/49 in the published records of both Pellone and Felton. It was a good fight but the decision was unpopular.

An "upset decision" - Pellone was considered the underdog; Montgomery was the recognized world lightweight champion in New York & Pennsylvania. "Neither the unanimous decision nor the crowd's whole-hearted approval was in doubt after the first few rounds as the 22 year old Pellone, who weighed 141¾ to 140½ for Montgomery, led the punching all the way and once sent his Philadelphia opponent half slipping to the canvas for a count of two."
