1944-09-29 Willie Pep w pts 15 Chalky Wright, Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - NY. Referee: Frank Fullam. Scorecards: 10-5, 10-3, 12-3. Yet again giving Wright (125½) no chance to close him down, apart from in the sixth and seventh rounds, their return fight saw Pep (125¼) using every inch of the ring to jab, duck and move to make life difficult for the ageing challenger. Pep did not take any chances in what turned out to be a repetition of their first contest, the unanimous decision in his favour being a formality.
