1927-12-16 Tod Morgan w disq 14 (15) Joe Glick, Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - NY/CALIFORNIA/PENNSYLVANIA. Referee: Eddie Forbes. Strangely below par Morgan (128¾) almost lost his title in this one, having been dropped four times for long counts in the first five rounds. Although behind on the scorecards, the champion made a game, though uphill recovery to actually carry off three of the last four rounds before being downed by a low blow in the 14th. The transgression saw Glick (129½) being thrown out of the ring with just four minutes and 51 seconds of the bout remaining. It was an unfortunate ending to a fight Glick was almost certain to win had it gone the distance.
