TKO9/10
Jefferson Beach Ballroom, Detroit, Michigan, USA
Cotton was down for a count in round two but Hank fought only about 30 seconds of each round and the fight went along. In the eighth round Cotton caught Hank with a right and had him wobbling at the bell. "However, Cotton was not allowed to come out for the ninth round because of a cut inside of his mouth which had been bleeding throughout the match." (The Ring, November 1958, page 65)
