1924-10-29 Mike McTigue w rtd 6 (12) Frank Carpenter, Marieville AC, Providence, Rhode Island, USA - NBA/GB. Referee: Mike Broderick. The Providence Evening Bulletin carried adverts showing this to be a billed title bout at 175lbs, with Carpenter in the role of challenger. The paper went on to report that the latter would strive hard to gain the honours. However, it was soon clear that the Freeport man had no right to be in the same ring as McTigue, who did very much as he pleased with him, especially at close quarters. After taking some heavy jolts from the champion’s educated fists Carpenter decided to call it a day at the end of the sixth round.
