1926-10-19 Tod Morgan w pts 10 Johnny Dundee, Recreation Park, San Francisco, California, USA - CALIFORNIA/NY/PENNSYLVANIA. Referee: Harry Ertle. Unfortunately, Dundee (126¼) damaged his right hand in the second round, and despite ultimately losing by a unanimous decision from there on in he fought a one-handed battle to keep the classy Morgan (128½) at bay, using the hook off the jab to last the distance.

Initially, the Californian Boxing Commission held up Dundee’s purse on the pretext that he had carried the injury into the ring. Eventually, Commissioner Hanlon overruled his conferees when telling the promoter to fork out what was due to a grand little fighting man.
