Line 1: Line 1:
1924-07-16 [[Abe Goldstein]] w pts 15 [[Charles Ledoux]], The Velodrome, Bronx, NYC, New York, USA - WORLD. Referee: Ed Purdy. Dropped in the eighth and 14th rounds, the badly marked up challenger showed that he was only a shadow of the once top fighter he was when making such a poor showing and being in distress from the very first round. That Goldstein (116) was unable to put Ledoux (117¾) to sleep upset the crowd, but the Frenchman had only been stopped inside the distance once in 125 previous contests. On realising that it might be a long night it was hardly surprising that Goldstein depended on his boxing to gain him the unanimous decision.
