Escobar abandons the undisputed World Bantamweight Title after this fight because he is unable to make the weight limit any more. Lou Salica would win the NBA title in March 1940, and unify the title once again the following September.

"Escobar dropped Bang for a count of nine in the first round, put him down for another nine count in the fourth and finished him with a right to the jaw late in the fifth. Escobar used a stinging right hand to riddle Bang's defence. The first time he unleashed it, in the opening round, it landed flush on the chin and the Boston boy sat down for the nine count while the crowd of 2,000 made ready for home." Montreal's Gazette

Reported as Escobar's first 15-rounder. The Gazette. The following December, Escobar fractured an ankle when he was struck by an automobile. He had to cancel a scheduled Dec. 20 bout in Montreal with the winner of the Lou Salica-Baby Quintana contest, and was out for months recuperating. Dec. 5 Los Angeles Times. So he went back home to Puerto Rico where he received a hero's welcome. Dec. 9 New York Times

This was considered a bantamweight elimination bout by the Montreal Athletic Commission, with the winner to face Mexican Champion Baby Casanova, present ring-side. "A crowd of about 4,500 saw Escobar unleash the lightning in his right hand early in the fourth round, and knock Leitham to the canvas three times. At the beginning of the fifth, another right hand punch to the jaw sent Leitham flat on his back and his second [Manager Sammy Gibbs] climbed into the ring to stop the fight...." Montreal Gazette
