1927-05-28 Tod Morgan w pts 12 Vic Foley, The Arena, Vancouver, Canada - VANCOUVER/NY/CALIFORNIA/PENN. Referee: Joe Waterman. Game and willing, the speedy Foley (125½) was knocked down twice - a ‘nine’ count in the second round after a heavy left had blasted him to his knees and a short count in the fifth - before getting up and gamely fighting on furiously. Even when Morgan (129¾) was cut over the right eye in the seventh, it made no difference to the way the fight was going. Concentrating downstairs throughout, Morgan had the firepower and in the final session Foley was lifted off his feet by a terrific left uppercut to the body only to remain standing. The referee’s decision was a formality.
