Bright was saved by the bell after being put down at the end of round 5. "When Bright came out for the sixth, Gorman sensing his advantage went at him like a tiger. He left-handed him and finally sent him down with a push. Bright might have come up before the tenth numeral but he would have been an easy victim so the referee hoisted Gorman's right mitt." - Toronto Star
